St Patrick's Athletic host Shamrock Rovers in Inchicore TONIGHT in a re-fixture of Friday's postponed game in the SSE Airtricity League (Kick-Off 7.45pm).
The Saints will be hoping for a reversal in fortunes against the Hoops after their opening day 1-0 defeat in Tallaght Stadium, with the added incentive that a win would also lift them above Pat Fenlon's side in the league standings.
In team news, the Saints welcome Sean Hoare back into the squad after he missed the Saints' 4-1 win in Galway due to illness. Buckley remains hopeful that both Christy Fagan (knee) and Ger O'Brien (hamstring) will make his matchday squad, however both will be assessed before kick-off. Togo international Cyril Guedje remains out with a hamstring injury.
Supporters of both clubs are asked to support the half-time raffle with all proceeds raised for former Derry City striker and all-time top-scorer of the Candystripes, Mark Farren who is currently fighting a life-threatening condition after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Following the game's postponement on Friday due to inclement weather, tickets already bought will still be valid for tonight's game.
Refunds are available if required from St Patrick's Athletic offices on Emmet Road, Inchicore between the hours of 9.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday - no refunds will be available at the game tonight.
Tickets will be on sale at the ground for both home and away supporters as normal.
