Saints Return To League Action

St Patrick's Athletic return to League of Ireland Premier Division action following their heroics in Russia last Thursday in the Europa League.

The Saints face league leaders Bohemians at Richmond Park looking to repeat their 3-1 victory over the Gypsies in Inchicore earlier this season.

For the first time this season manager Jeff Kenna has no injury concerns.

Both Mark Quigley and Gary Dempsey are fit and available for selection but the Saints must do without the suspended Declan O'Brien and Garreth O'Connor.

Kenna told that he was delighted to have the injured duo back.

“It's great to have Mark and Gary back for selection. They might be lacking a bit of match sharpness but they're back in full training and available.

"They are two of the most influential players at the club and it's great to be able to call on them again.”

The Saints performances in Europe have drawn plaudits from far and wide and Kenna expects that form to transfer into the league.

“In the last four weeks the level of performance in the European games has been excellent.

"That level has to remain between now and the end of the season and I expect all the players to approach this game against Bohemians the same way they did the games against Krylya.”

Kick off in Richmond Park is 7.45 and tickets are available in the club shop and through tickemaster outlets.
