Team News: Dundalk Vs Saints
St Patrick's Athletic travel up the M1 on Friday evening as they face reigning SSE Airtricity League champions Dundalk on Friday night in Oriel Park, kick-off 7.45pm.
The Saints will be looking for a repeat of their earlier victory over the Lilywhites in the league when a sole goal separated the sides in Inchicore back in April, Daniel Cleary putting the ball into his own net on that particular night.
The Saints head into the game off the back of a 1-0 victory on Tuesday night as a Kevin Toner goal was enough to see off Derry City and move Harry Kenny's men closer to both the Candystripes and Bohemians above them in the league table.
In team news, Saints' boss Kenny will be without trio Dean Clarke, Lee Desmond and Conor Clifford through injury, however the manager reports no further injuries following Tuesday night's 1-0 home win over Derry.
"I was pleased with the result on Tuesday night against Derry. The lads worked really hard and played some good football at times. It was good to keep another clean sheet, a good goal from a set-piece from Kevin [Toner] and now we move on quickly to face Dundalk," Kenny told stpatsfc.com.
"It will be another tough game in quick succession for us. Dundalk have been going really well in the last few weeks, and have moved to the top of the table. We have played them twice this season to date, winning one and losing one so we know what to expect from them, and know what we have to do ourselves."
