St Patrick's Athletic travel up the M1 on Friday evening ahead of facing SSE Airtricity League leaders Dundalk in Oriel Park.
The Saints will be hoping to pick up points following a 3-1 defeat in their last league encounter against Bohemians two weeks ago, while last week saw Pat's defeated on penalties against Shelbourne in the Leinster Senior Cup Final.
In team news, caretaker manager Ger O'Brien will be without the services of both Darragh Markey and Dean Clarke through suspension, while striker Christy Fagan remains out with a knee injury.
"Dundalk have been very good this season and having seen them play recently, they have been impressive on their way to claiming this year's league title. We know it will be a tough game against them in Oriel Park and we will need to be at our best to get a result," O'Brien told stpatsfc.com.
"We have four games left this season and the aim will be to try and pick up as many points as we can. That starts on Friday night against Dundalk."
