Saints Prepare To Win

  • Wed, Aug 03, 2011 @ 20:44

St Patrick's Athletic manager, Pete Mahon, has confirmed that his side will be set up to win tomorrow's Europa League Third Qualifying Round second leg match against FC Karpaty Lviv.

Trailing two-nil from the first leg in the Ukraine, the Saints know they need at least two goals to progress.

"If we can keep a clean sheet, we will give ourselves a great chance of progressing."

"If they score one, it will mean we to score four, which will make it a very hard task for us."

With no injuries or suspensions, Mahon has a full squad to choose from.

"Training went very well last night. We welcome back Stephen Bradley and Daryl Kavanagh from suspension which gives me a selection headache, but this is a good problem to have."

"Above all we will be looking to win the game. We want to finish the European campaign on a high, a win tomorrow will give us three victories out of six which will be a great achievement."

"Though Karpaty are a good side, a step up from what we have faced before, while progression to the Play-Offs is not beyond us, it will be a difficult task."

Tickets for the game are on sale from the Club Shop in Inchicore and will also be on sale at the Tallaght Stadium before kick-off.
