Saints Vs Drogheda United
Come out and support the Saints as their thunderous start to the season rolls on to Friday night's clash with table-toppers, Drogheda United. Both teams have enjoyed success in the opening of the 2006 season and the 7:45pm kick-off at Richmond Park will surely be heard throughout the greater Dublin area.
The Saints' are in great form with two successful matches on the road this week. The inspiring fire within the team ensured the Saints leaving Sligo with a point after the equalizer during injury time. The lads made their presence felt again Tuesday night in Bray with a 2-1 triumph over the Seagulls in a League Cup match.
What impressed Manager John McDonnell the most from the past two matches was not just the performance on the pitch, but in the stands. â€śWhen we were down in Sligo our fans stayed with us until the last whistle, and the lads needed that,â€ť boasted McDonnell. â€śWe need all our supporters on Friday night, more than ever, to be our twelfth man!â€ť
Friday night also welcomes the return of Keith Fahey to Richmond Park, this time donning the Drogheda colours. Supporters can expect a strong competitive nature from this former Pats' favourite.
Three points from Friday night's match will push the Saints back towards the summit of table, so show up on Friday night to make your voices heard; we want victory on your minds and Saints in your hearts. Let's assemble the masses and beat the drum for the Red Army!
