St Patrick's Athletic make the trip up the M1 as they face SSE Airtricity League champions Dundalk in Oriel Park on Saturday evening (kick-off 7pm).
The Saints will be looking to bounce back from the 2-1 defeat suffered against Finn Harps last Tuesday in Richmond Park when they face Stephen Kenny's side.
In team news, Liam Buckley is boosted by the availability of Aidan Keena and Darren Dennehy who have completed suspensions.
"Dundalk had huge success last year and we know that they are always a very strong team at home in Oriel Park. We both suffered defeats last Monday night so I imagine they'll also be determined to bounce back."
"From our point of view, we know we need to improve on Monday's performance. We started well but a couple of errors cost us and you get punished for that.
We'll be looking to again make a positive start and if we can do that, we'll be hoping to give a good account of ourselves."
