Saints Start 2008 FAI Cup Campaign

St Pat's start their 2008 FAI Ford Cup campaign with a home fixture against Longford Town this Friday evening.

Team News
Keith Fahey, David Partridge, John Frost remain out.

Michael Keane is back to full training but is unlikely to feature but Stephen Paisley returns to the defence following a groin injury.

Manager's Comment
“It's the start of the cup competition and five matches and five wins could see a team with a trophy and qualification for Europe so we'll be trying to go as far as we can.

We're playing at home and no disrespect to Longford but on home ground we've a great chance of making it into the next round.

Longford are a revamped young team, they've made a good start to the season and they will be eager. With the cup anything can happen so we will be treating the match with a lot of caution”.
