Richmond Park plays host to the Airtricity League match between St Patrick's Athletic and Drogheda United tomorrow night (Friday) at 7.45pm.
The Saints will be looking to extend a seventeen match unbeaten run in Richmond Park, having not lost since the opening home Airtricity League game (against Bray Wanderers).”
The Saints welcome back Gary Rogers and Shane McFaul from suspension having missed last week's defeat to Derry City.
Recent signing Sean O'Connor is the only injury concern with a calf strain.
John Gill (Assistant Manager)
“Off-field matters have been well documented of late, but training has gone very well this week and there is a good vibe within the team and the players are very positive ahead of the game on Friday and Monday (against Bohemians).”
“Obviously we are very disappointed with the manner of the defeat last week. It was the concession of sloppy goals that cost us the game and we have been working on this at training this week as we need to cut out the individual errors.”
“It is a big plus having Gary (Rogers) and Shane (McFaul) back this week. Having a fully fit squad gives us a few options in terms of the starting eleven and formation.”
“Drogheda are one of the inform teams at the moment having picked up seven points from their last three games. Mick Cooke is doing a good job up there and he has bolstered his squad during the recent transfer window so we certainly won't be under-estimating them tomorrow.”
