St Patrick's Athletic travel to Dalymount Park tomorrow night as they aim to return to winning ways against their Dublin rivals Bohemians (kick-off 8pm – live on Setanta Ireland).
The Saints will be hoping to replicate their 3-1 win against Bohemians in April in Richmond Park, while contrastly the Gypsies will be looking to repeat their 3-2 EA Sports Cup win over the Inchicore side back in May.
Speaking to stpatsfc.com before the game, Liam Buckley admitted his side were looking forward to the game and keen to get back playing following their defeat to Shamrock Rovers last weekend.
“We were disappointed with last week's result but the players have worked hard all week and we'll be looking to put things right and get a result. Owen Heary will have Bohs set-up very well so look it, it'll be a tough game.”
“All Dublin derbies are the same – a lot of passion, can be frenetic and high paced. But we'll look to concentrate on ourselves, so if we get the performance level right, we'll hopefully get a result.”
In team news, Buckley confirmed that both Sean Hoare (ankle) and Killian Brennan (knock) are doubts for the game and will face fitness tests before the game, while Keith Fahey misses out through suspension.
Ken Oman however is back in contention to feature having served a two match ban.
