St Patrick's Athletic have no suspensions or injury worries.
The team will train this evening (Thurs) and Pete Mahon has a full squad of players to choose from.
â€śAll five of the premier division games played during the week ended in draws which reaffirms my belief as to how difficult it is to win matches in this league.
Drogheda became the first team in domestic competition to get the better of us this season (Pat's lost 1-0 Drogheda in the Leinster Senior Cup).
Drogheda have more strengths throughout their team than their current league placing may suggest.
They have some experienced players well capable of turning a game â€“ some of whom played here last year and we will have to be on our guardâ€ť â€“ Pete Mahon.
Saints goalkeeper Gary Rogers has recently been voted player of the month for March by the St Patrick's Athletic Supporters club.
