Team News: Longford Vs SAINTS (kick-off 8pm)

St Patrick's Athletic travel to the midlands on Monday night for their second SSE Airtricity League game in four days as they face Longford Town (kick-off 8pm).

The Saints will be looking to make it two wins on the trot following Friday's 1-0 home win over Galway United thanks to Christy Fagan's first half strike.

Speaking to www.stpatsfc.com ahead of Monday's game, Saints' manager Liam Buckley spoke of his happiness with Friday's result but warned of the strong test he expects to face from Tony Cousins' side in City Calling Stadium.

"Friday was an important win for us as it hopefully gets us up and running now for this last series of fixtures in the league. We've had little time though to rest on our laurels as we have a quick turnaround into the Longford game."

"Longford really put it up to us the last day out in Richmond Park and the 3-3 draw could have easily ended either way. We are fully aware of their threats and we are always given a strong test from Longford judging by games in the past. We've a few bodies back though from injury so we'll be heading to Longford to try and get the three points."

In team news, Buckley is boosted by the return of Darren Dennehy, Keith Treacy and Mark Timlin to his matchday squad, while Sam Verdon is to be assessed ahead of the game as he recovers from concussion. The Saints remain without David Cawley who continues to recover from a broken collarbone.
