St Patrick's Athletic return to SSE Airtricity League action on Friday night as they host Finn Harps in Richmond Park (kick-off 7.45pm).
The Saints will be looking to maintain their current form which has seen them claim five wins in their last six games in all competitions.
Liam Buckley's side will be looking for a reversal in fortunes against the Donegal side as in the two previous meetings to date, Ollie Horgan's Harps side have claimed victories over the Saints.
"Friday night will be another tough game. Harps have recorded several impressive results over the season to date and have signed a few players recently so we know it will be another challenging game against them.
"We're coming into the game off a tough game last week against Portmarnock. We got the job done to advance to the next round of the FAI Cup, but know we need to improve on our level of performance.
"We've had some great support over the last few weeks, both in home and away games, so I know we'll get another good backing from our home support on Friday. We'll be looking to give them something to shout about again by taking all three points and keep this run of ours going."
In team news, Liam Buckley must plan without midfielder Killian Brennan who serves a one match suspension, while defenders Gavin Peers and Darren Dennehy remain on the sidelines through injury however both are closing in on a return to action.
New Saints' goalkeeper Lukasz Skowron is line for his debut should he feature.
