Shamrock Rovers and Cork City have never met in the competition before, neither have Drogheda United or Sligo Rovers.
Denis Behan is joint top all-time scorer alongside Peter Thompson on 11 goals, but hasn’t scored in the comp since 2008.
Mark Quigley on 10 goals is one behind Behan and Thompson.
It’s Cork’s 34th #SSCup tie tonight – only Glentoran and Linfield have played more.
