St Pats landed in Malta yesterday as they prepare to take on Valletta in the second leg of their second round Europa League Qualifying tie.
The temperature in Valletta yesterday reached 32°C and with the match scheduled for a 5.30pm (local time) kick-off the heat is likely to be a key factor in the game.
Following their arrival yesterday afternoon the players had a light training session and they will train at the Centenary Stadium this evening.
The 18 man playing squad includes:
Gary Rogers, Brendan Clarke, Stephen Maher, Enda Stevens, Noel Haverty, Jason Gavin, Dave Partridge, Jamie Harris, Damian Lynch, Bobby Ryan, Garret O'Connor, Stuart Byrne, Darragh Ryan, Ryan Guy, Declan O'Brien, Glen Fitzpatrick, Andy Haran, Alan Cawley.
