  • Tue, Apr 15, 2008 @ 11:16

JOHNNY McDONNELL
Johnny McDonnell the Pat's manager is looking forward to the visit of the current Irish League Champions, Linfield.

“I have said before as a club we at Pat's want to be playing against the best teams in the country and tonight that will certainly be the case. Linfield will visit Richmond Park for the first time - in what will be a great occasion.”

“We will be looking to win because we still feel we can make the last four. There are still 12 points to play for and with every team capable of beating the others – home or away – I think we are still in with a great shout.”

“If Linfield do turn us over then they would be in a very strong position but a win would leave us well placed. It makes for an intriguing contest”


DAVID JEFFREY
David Jeffrey faces tonight's clash with Pats with seriously limited options. The Belfast club has lost four players through injury or suspension. Kris Lindsay misses out through suspension, while the trio of Jim Ervin, Tim Mouncy and Tim McCann are out through injury.

“After wins against Derry and Glentoran we are in a strong position and we want to keep the run going. The injuries and suspensions limit my options so the squad more or less picks itself,” said Jeffrey.
