Team News: Limerick Vs St Pat's
St Patrick's Athletic travel south to face Limerick on Friday evening in the SSE Airtricity League (kick-off 7.45pm).
The Saints will be hoping to maintain momentum after Liam Buckley's side picked up a valuable 3 points last week in their 2-0 home win over Dublin rivals Shamrock Rovers.
In team news, the Saints hope to have a full squad available although they will make a late check on Owen Garvan before kick-off, while Christy Fagan, who turns 29 on Friday, is in contention to make his return following injury.
"After losing to Dundalk, we wanted to bounce back against Shamrock Rovers last Friday so to pick up a win was a huge boost to everyone.
It was a reminder to us all of the performance levels we need to put in and what we can achieve when we do that. We need to now apply that standard again against Limerick on Friday," Buckley told stpatsfc.com.
"We had a narrow win over Limerick in Inchicore a number of weeks ago so we are expecting another tough game. Limerick were good last week in Cork and only narrowly lost so we know they will be strong again this week."
