Preview: Saints V Bohs

  • Mon, Sep 24, 2007 @ 9:21

St Patrick's Athletic will be without Anthony Murphy for the FAI Ford Cup quarter-final against Bohemians at Richmond Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Murphy, who actually has not featured for Pat's in recent weeks, was sent off in the third round win away at Bray Wanderers.

Colm Foley, who made his return from injury with three minutes to go against Bray Wanderers in the league last week, should return to the starting line-up.

Mark Quigley and Joseph Ndo should also return.

Bohs will be hoping to bounce back from Monday's league defeat to Shamrock Rovers by extending their cup run.

Conor Powell and Stephen Rice return for the Gypsies, as do goalkeeper Brian Murphy (leg), Mark Rossiter (chest infection) and Darren Mansaram.

Neale Fenn is receiving intensive treatment on his injury and remains doubtful.

St Pat's are expecting a capacity attendance as was the case when the clubs met in April.

Bohs have been allocated a portion of the main stand and a section of the Camac terrace, with tickets available from Dalymount Park.

St Pat's supporters are to enter the ground through the Archway on Emmet Road or through turnstiles 1, 2 and 3.

The Saints are advising that season tickets and 500 Club tickets are not valid for this fixture.
