Preview: Bohs Vs Saints (28/02/22)

St Patrick's Athletic face their second game in three days on Monday evening at Dalymount Park.

Monday's match at Bohemians is a repeat of the 2021 FAI Cup Final where The Saints emerged victorious after that famous penalty shootout win over their Dublin rivals.

The game kicks off at 7.45pm, with a small number of away tickets available online. Please note, no away tickets will be on sale at the ground.

Tim Clancy's men began the season with an impressive 3-0 win over Shelbourne, but were beaten 2-1 by Sligo Rovers on Friday.

Goals from Colm Horgan and Aidan Keena gave the Bit O'Red a two-goal advantage. St Pat's substitute Tunde Owolabi scored his first goal for the club when he pulled one back, but Sligo held on for the points despite a late Saints surge.

16-year-old Adam Murphy became the club's second youngest ever senior player on Friday when he came on against Sligo, having joined from Belvedere in January 2020, he progressed through the Saints Academy U15s, 17s & 19s, signing his first pro contract last July on his 16th birthday.



Opposition Watch and Recent Meetings

The game on Monday will be their first meeting in 2021, but St Pat's and Bohs are no strangers to each other.

The sides met in the Aviva in November in a memorable 2021 FAI Cup Final. Chris Forrester's wonder goal was cancelled out by Rory Feely's header in extra-time before St Pat's took the cup back to Inchicore for the first time since 2014 with that penalty shootout win.

They met on four occasions in the league last year. Ronan Coughlan's header from a corner earned a 1-0 win at Dalymount in May.

This was followed by a dramatic return fixture at Richmond. Dawson Devoy's late penalty looked as if it had snatched a draw after Matty Smith's opener, however, St Pat's immediately went in search of the winner, and they found it through a Robbie Benson penalty in injury-time.

Bohs won the next meeting in July. Georgie Kelly, Tyreke Wilson and Liam Burt scored in a 3-2 victory. An Andy Lyons' own goal gave the St Pat's faithful some hope, but Jay McClelland's goal in stoppage time was too little for nine-man Saints.

They went toe to toe again in November in the league. Billy King and Jay McClelland had put the home side 2-0 ahead before goals from Ross Tierney and Promise Omochere levelled things up.



View From The Dugout

Manager Tim Clancy has been reflecting on Friday's defeat to Sligo and looking ahead of tomorrow's Dalymount derby:

"We had a disappointing result on Friday, despite a better second-half performance, it wasn't enough so we are looking to bounce back straight away at Dalymount if we can.

It's going to be another tough game in what is a busy period at the start of the season, but football always gives you an opportunity and with this match coming so quickly after Friday, it gives us a chance to bounce back.

We loved playing in front of a packed Richmond Park on Friday, we've also had fantastic away crowds at both Tallaght Stadium and Tolka Park in the last couple of week's and we'll hopefully have the same tomorrow night.


Team-news: Paddy Barrett continues his rehab from injury with Ronan Coughlan pushing to the available.
