Limerick V St Patrick's Athletic

  • Fri, Jun 12, 2009 @ 15:08

First Division Limerick host St Patrick's Athletic at Jackman Park tonight hoping to cause an upset, kick-off 7.45pm.

Such has been St Pat's' inconsistent form and injury list this season, it would not come as too much of a surprise if Pat Scully's side got a result from this game.

However, St Pat's travel on the back of an impressive win over champions Bohemians last weekend. Manager Jeff Kenna hopes that win was a turning point in their season.

He said: 'We had a great win on Friday and you're always looking to build on a good performance like that and put a good run together.

'The cup is high on our priorities this year, but every year brings cup upsets. We'll need to approach the game with Limerick with caution.'

The 2006 runners-up will be without Darragh Ryan (hamstring), Gareth O'Connor (thigh strain), Alan Cawley (ankle), Gints Freimans (knee), Gary Dempsey (leg) and Mark Leech (leg).

Kenna has Stuart Byrne (suspension) and Mark Quigley (injury) available again.
