Shamrock R v St Pat's Ath

(Tallaght Stadium, tomorrow, 2.0)

League form: Shamrock Rovers WDWDL, St Patrick's Ath DWWWW

Match odds: Shamrock Rovers 17/20, St Patrick's Ath 10/3, Draw 9/4

Referee: D McKeon (Dublin)

Team News: Chris Turner is suspended for the Hoops, while Karl Sheppard is ruled out of the game with an ankle injury. Conor Kenna is still out for the Saints with a knee injury, while James O'Brien misses out with an ankle problem.

Talking Point: If it weren't for their long journey back from Iceland, the Saints would be hotly fancied for this game, coming in as they are on the back of a four-game winning run. After the week they've had, the Hoops should be chomping at the bit to get back on the pitch and it will be interesting to see if they can raise their game.

Verdict: Draw.
