St Patrick's Athletic face the trip to Ballybofey on Friday evening as they face Finn Harps in Finn Park in the SSE Airtricity League (kick-off 8pm).

Following last week's FAI Cup exit to UCD, the Saints will hope to return to winning ways in the league and a repeat of the 2-0 win earlier in the season against Harps in Ballybofey.

Speaking to ahead of the game, Director of Football Ger O'Brien outlined that the the Saints are looking to pick a third win on the bounce, however they will have to cope without both Mikey Drennan (suspension) and Jamie Lennon (injury).

"We spoke as a group on Monday about the defeat to UCD and the players know they have to do better. We have had a good week of training and the focus all week has been on ourselves in improving things. We have to be focused in order to bounce back with a result," O'Brien admitted, who will be in charge of the Saints on the night.

"Ballybofey is a tough venue always, but if we can be fully concentrated and focused like we've spoken about in training all week, we are hopefuly we can come away from Finn Park with three points."
