Saints squad fully focused

MANAGER Pete Mahon will have a full squad to choose from as St Patrick's Athletic bid to overcome a two-goal deficit against Karpaty Lviv in the second leg of their Europa League third round qualifier in Tallaght tonight.

And Mahon is confident that his players will be fully focused on the task despite the row over bonus payments. "I didn't see any sign of the players being distracted at training," he said.

"They were obviously talking amongst themselves, but that's a natural thing to expect. The players were buzzing, the attitude here is fantastic."

St Pat's welcome back Dave Mulcahy after injury, while Daryl Kavangh and Stephen Bradley, who were suspended for the first leg, are also available .

"These are a good team but they are not by any stretch of the imagination unbeatable," added Mahon.

ST PAT'S (probable): Rogers; Pender, Shortall, McMillan, Bermingham; Bradley, McFaul, Kavanagh, Mulcahy, Doyle; North.
