St Pat's face a tough challenge when they take on an inform Cork City side on Saturday night at Richmond Park in Inchicore.

The Leesiders have won seven of their last eight games in the League while the Saints have lost recent league games to Galway United and Shamrock Rovers.

St Pat's player Ryan Guy shared his views to on the upcoming game with Cork City as well as the club's recent disappointing run of form.

“The team has been plagued with injuries and suspensions this season and in a lot of cases luck has simply gone against us and this has led to a lot of disruption in the way we play.

We've been trying hard in matches without getting rewards which is frustrating for everyone. We need to keep working hard to turn things around, stop conceding and start scoring more.

After the run we've had it's bound to turn around for us but we need to keep the focus and keep working hard.

The fans at Pats are also being tested. We're all proud to be part of a big Dublin club but results aren't going our way at the moment and we all need to try and get back to winning ways.

Saturday night's game will be a tough one. It's important that we keep the right focus – concentrate on winning the game rather than any thoughts of damage limitation.

We need to keep confidence in ourselves – we have shown that we can score against them and can beat them and that is the attitude we have to take into Saturday night's game”.

Tickets for St Patrick's Athletic V Cork City for Saturday 9th May kick off 7.30pm at Richmond Park are now on sale from the club and club shop as well as from Ticketmaster.
