For most of the players involved in tomorrow night's FAI Ford Cup match against Phoenix FC, the heart-break of losing last year's epic final still lingers on.
The Saints will be looking at Friday's fixture as an opportunity to bounce back from the recent defeat to Galway and start their 2007 cup campaign over the non-league opposition.
During the two week break, John McDonnell's team got some well earned rest, following a hectic schedule of 21 competitive games in 83 days. But it was training as normal this week as the team turned their attention to tomorrow's important match.
The Saints were drawn away for the 2nd round clash but the match has been switched to Richmond Park.
Tickets for the game are priced as follows:
Adult Stand: €15
Adult Terrace: €10
