Team News: Derry Vs Saints
St Patrick's Athletic make the trip on Friday night to the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium when they face Derry City in the SSE Airtricity League (kick-off 7.45pm).
The Saints will be hoping to bounce back from two defeats in their past two games when they face the Foylesiders who currently sit four points ahead of Harry Kenny's side in fourth place in the league.
In team news, the Saints are without defender Kevin Toner through suspension while Dean Clarke also misses out through injury. However the Saints are boosted by the return of Rhys McCabe having recovered from a concussion suffered in the recent clash against Shamrock Rovers.
"We are hoping to see a positive response from the players after the defeat to Waterford last week," Saints' boss Harry Kenny told stpatsfc.com.
"Derry are a really good side and are one place ahead of us in the league. They are going well under Declan Devine, and the Brandywell is a really tough place to go to. That said though, we'll be looking to pick up a positive result and reduce that gap to them in the league table."
