Saints Looking To Progress

The Saints and the Boynesiders meet again this Monday evening as Liam Buckley's side attempt to advance to the Semi-Finals of the FAI Cup.

Following last Friday's 0-0 draw in Richmond Park, the Inchicore side travel to United Park in search of the result to see them join Shelbourne, Dundalk and Derry City in last four of the cup.

Ahead of the quarter-final replay, Pats' manager Liam Buckley told stpatsfc.com that both Mark Rossiter and recent recruit Hernany Macedo will sit out the game through injury, while Saints' top-scorer Christy Fagan and John Russell face late fitness tests before kick-off.

The Saints however have been boosted by the returns of Anto Flood and Dean Kellywho have resumed full training and could come into contention for a place in the matchday squad, while Stephen O'Flynn saw his return to first team duty in the final stages of last Friday's drawn game.

The Saints have found Drogheda to be stern challengers in recent times having drawn 0-0 twice with the Boynesiders this season, and Buckley admitted that both the management and players expect another tight affair.

“Drogheda are a tough team to play on any day, but playing them out in United Park makes things a bit more difficult,” Buckley admitted.

“In spite of that though, it's a chance to progress to the semi-finals and the players are looking forward to Monday evening. One side will finish on top one way or the other on Monday, we just hope that it is ourselves that finish on the right side of the result.”
