UEFA CUP TIE SOLD OUT!
Tonight's eagerly awaited UEFA Cup tie between St Patrick's Athletic and IF Elfsborg in Richmond Park is now sold out.
Ticket holders are encouraged to arrive early for the 7.45 kick off in Inchicore as Pats seek to advance to the First Round proper of the competition.
The Saints earned a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Sweden thanks to second-half goals from Mark Quigley and Gary Dempsey.
Manager John McDonnell must plan without captain Jamie Harris and Irish International Joe O'Cearuill who are both suspended. Dessie Byrne (hamstring), Derek O'Brien, Glen Fitzpatrick (both ankle) and John Murphy (back) are all doubtful but striker Gary O'Neill is fit to start.
St Patrick's Athletic's next home match is on Friday 5th September against Galway United in the eircom Legaue of Ireland.
