St Patrick's Athletic host Dundalk for a second time this week as they host the Lilywhites in Richmond Park on Friday night (kick-off 7.45pm)
In team news, Sainst' manager Harry Kenny is without Mikey Drennan through suspension, while Dean Clarke is ruled out with concussion. Brandon Miele will face a late fitness test on an injury picked up in last week's 1-0 defeat to Bohemians.
Reflecting on Monday's 2-1 defeat in Inchicore to Dundalk in the EA Sports Cup, Saints' manager Harry Kenny felt that the result was harsh on his side as a number of players impressed when given the opportunity.
"Delighted with the performance and with the lads who came in, especially James Doona, Darragh Markey, Cian Coleman and big Ciaran Kelly - the four of them did very well," he told stpatsfc.com
"There was a good attitude from everyone. I thought we were very unlucky with the result on Monday against Dundalk. It was the same story that we are making mistakes that is causing us to play catch up. If we can cut out those mistakes that we have been talking about the last few weeks, we'll be ok."
