MAHON HAS 'NO FEAR' OF SLIGO TRIP

  • Fri, Apr 08, 2011 @ 13:42

The Saints travel to The Showgrounds in Sligo tomorrow (Saturday), knowing that a victory will see them move level on points with their hosts on ten points.

In order to do so the Saints will have to breach a Sligo backline that has conceded only one goal in their opening five games.

TEAM NEWS:
Pete Mahon will be without captain Conor Kenna for the 4th consecutive game as he recovers from a knee injury.

Brian Shortall trained twice this week but a decision on his fitness will be made tomorrow.

PETE MAHON:
"I am expecting a tough game against Sligo; games between us have been tight recently, and we are expecting the same on Saturday.

"Having watched the DVD of last week's game I was disappointed that we didn't take all 3 points. We didn't play well and I will be looking for an improvement in this week's performance.

"We won't fear travelling to the Showgrounds, we will be looking to take 3 points from the game."

TRIVIA:
In the four league games between these sides last season only two goals (one each) with two of the games ending in scoreless draws.

In contrast, the three cup games between the sides last season (2 Setanta Sports Cup, 1 EA Sports Cup) saw 13 goals scored.
