Preview: Saints Vs Dundalk

  • Sun, Mar 11, 2018 @ 21:21

St Patrick's Athletic are back in SSE Airtricity League action again on Monday night as they host Dundalk in Richmond Park (Kick-off 7.45pm).

Following last Friday's 1-0 Dublin derby win in Dalymount Park over Bohemians, the Saints head into their second league game in the space of four days.

In team news, St Pat's manager Liam Buckley remains without the services of Killian Brennan through injury, while Jamie Lennon will face a late fitness test before the game.

"I was delighted with the win on Friday night against Bohs. I thought the players worked really hard and showed great commitment and concentration to see out the game and get the points. We need to show that desire throughout the season and that coupled with more work on a few areas will see us improve," Buckley told stpatsfc.com.

"However our focus since late Friday night has been on recovery and preparing for another tough game.

Dundalk will travel to Inchicore in good spirits off the back of a good win against Cork last Friday.

Stephen Kenny has again put a good squad of players together and we know that they are going to be up there again challenging for the league title."


"We need to be at it from the off as that was what cost us against Cork City in our last home game.

We have had some great support at all our games to date so we are expecting another big crowd on Monday night."
