Bohs facing tough task

IT'S the clash of the inevitable contenders and the unlikely pretenders as champions Bohemians take on St Patrick's Athletic at Dalymount tonight.

While it may be a little too early to pronounce the Saints as a team capable of taking the title for the first time in 11 years, Pete Mahon has overseen a miraculous turn-around since last September.

Team news: Bohs are without Steven Gray (ankle) while Anto Murphy (shoulder) is doubtful. Pat's expect to have Damien Lynch (thigh) fit.
