Pete Mahon has spoken with stpatsfc.com within the past 15 minutes to give an update from Reykjavik with less than two hours to kick-off.
"We are travelling on the team coach at the moment to the ground and it is quite warm. I am hoping it cools down by kick-off time."

The starting XI has been confirmed as (4-3-3):
Gary Rogers; Ian Bermingham, Evan McMillan, Brian Shortall, Derek Pender; Paul Crowley, Stephen Bradley, David Mulcahy; Derek Doyle, Daryl Kavanagh, Daniel North.
