St Patrick's Athletic return to SSE Airtricity League action on Friday night when they host Derry City in Richmond Park (kick-off 7.45pm).
The Saints will be hoping to continue their recent good form which has seen them claim three league wins in their last three games against Shamrock Rovers (h), Limerick (a) and most recently against Sligo Rovers (h).
Unbeaten in their last 7 league games in Inchicore as well, Saints' manager Liam Buckley admitted to stpatsfc.com that his side are looking to maintain momentum from their recent wins, albeit they face a difficult challenge against Derry on Friday.
"We are heading into a really tough game on Friday against Derry. They have been superb at home in the new Brandywell and are one of the top teams in the division.
I felt we were very unlucky to not come away with anything having dominated the game up there."
"We had a really good win on Tuesday against Sligo and we are hoping to continue this good run of form into each game."
In team news, the Saints have a full squad available with Owen Garvan available for selection after recovering from a recent illness.
