Result: Longford 1 - Saints 4

Matty Smith scored a hat-trick as St Patrick's Athletic made it three big wins in eight days.

A fourth victory of the campaign over relegated Longford, coupled to Derry not winning, means second-placed St Pat's confirm their place in Europe for next season.

With Monday's FAI Cup final rehearsal with Bohemians in mind, Saints' manager Stephen O'Donnell made six changes to this starting eleven as midfielder Chris Forrester and striker Smith returned from suspension.

With four changes from their 1-0 defeat to Shamrock Rovers last Saturday, Longford started brightly, Aaron O'Driscoll glancing a header from an Aodh Dervin corner wide across goal with four minutes up on the watch.
