Saints Host Dundalk On Monday

Liam Buckley is looking to get back to winning ways in Inchicore this Monday evening as his Saints take on Dundalk.

St Pat's remain unbeaten in the league this season but a late Jason Byrne goal denied them all three points against Bray Wanderers in the Carlisle Grounds on Friday night.

Buckley told STPATSFC.COM that he remains without James Chambers and Mark Rossiter while Stephen O'Flynn (thigh), Seán O'Connor (groin) and Darren Meenan (shoulder) are doubtful.

"James and Mark are both still out but Stephen O'Flynn is back training and we'll assess Darren Meenan tomorrow.

"Seán O'Connor came off on Friday night with a groin problem and we'll have a look at him tomorrow as well.

"I was pleased with our performance on Friday and the equaliser coming so late was disappointing but, as a I keep saying, there are no easy three points in the league and Dundalk will be no different.


The Saints conceded more than one goal for the first time in the league this season on Friday and Ger O'Brien is hoping the Saints defence can out Friday's game behind them.

"I felt we played well on Friday night but conceding three when we had only conceded four in the first series of games was disappointing.

"The performance was good though and we left Bray feeling like we'd dropped two points.

"We had a settled side for the first series of games but have picked up a few injuries in recent weeks but that's why we need a strong squad.

"We have a good squad and I've no doubt that the lads who are there can come in and do a good job.

"If we perform like we did on Friday against Dundalk, and keep it tighter at the back, I think we'll have a good chance of coming away with three points.
