Preview: Drogs V Saints

  • Fri, Sep 16, 2005 @ 0:00

Keith Fahey will line up for Drogheda against his former club St. Pats for the first time on Friday night at United Park. The Saints are still looking nervously over their shoulder and if Harps or Waterford start picking up points they are in trouble.

Drogheda United vs St. Patricks Athletic
(United Park - 7:45 pm - Premier)
Referee: Paul McKeon

Too many draws have dented Drogheda's plans and they've won just one in their last nine league games but are unbeaten in six.

St. Pats have now not won in six league games and have suffered three one goal defeats in a row to late goals.
Drogheda should be at full strength.

Colm Foley remains out for the Saints. Darragh Maguire returns from a one game ban.
