SAINTS TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED IN SETANTA SEMI

While St Patrick's Athletic take a three goal cushion with them to the Showgrounds on Saturday night, the Saints will be taking nothing for granted in the return leg of their Setanta Cup semi final.

In his post-match press briefing manager Pete Mahon was quick to point how Manchester United though 3-0 up in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final but still failed to qualify and added “Sligo Rovers certainly possess the ability to punish anyone who believes that this semi-final is over”.

Sligo boss Paul Cook a veteran of over with over 600 professional appearances in English football is sure to encourage his team to try and get an early goal and to pile on the pressure from there.

Since taking over at Rovers in 2007 Cook his team have always shown extreme determination and a strong work ethic and he will certainly have his team prepared for a fight this weekend.

Paul Byrne, Dave McAllister, Gareth Coughlan and Ryan Guy all got their name on the score sheet for the Saints on Tuesday night's 4-1 win over a Sligo side that suffered their first defeat of the season.

The team trains this evening in Celbridge ahead of the early evening kick off on Saturday.

Sligo Rovers V St. Pats takes place this Saturday 17th April at the Showgrounds at 17.15pm.

A supporters' bus will leave McDowell's at 1.30pm.
