Saints' captain, Conor Kenna, who was been sidelined with a knee injury since mid-March, is responding well to treatment and could resume training this weekend.
Kenna who picked up a knee injury following the second game of the season against Bray Wanderers, has missed the last 10 games for the Saints.
He as been a bit loss for the team, but Evan McMillan, Brian Shorthall and Dave Mulcahy have all stepped in to cover the gap in the centre of defence.
Saints' manager, Pete Mahon, confirmed that 'his knee has reacted well to the treatment so far and Conor will undergo the final course on Thursday and all going well will be okay to commence training on Saturday."
