Dundalk V St Pat's Ath

  • Fri, Sep 23, 2011 @ 14:36

League form: Dundalk DDLDL, St Pat's Ath WDWWD

Match odds: Dundalk 9/4, St Pat's 11/10, Draw 12/5

Referee: P Sutton (Clare)

Team news: Pete Mahon is without David McMillan and six other players, but in an effort to pull the wool over Ian Foster's eyes he is not prepared to release their names. Eoghan Osborne (fractured tibia), Stephen Maher (fractured metatarsal) and Colin Hawkins (knee) remain on the sidelines for Dundalk, with Ross Gaynor (ankle) doubtful.

Talking point: An extra-time defeat to Bohemians on Tuesday effectively ended Dundalk's season, while off-field money problems and Foster's impending exit mean heads may be turned. It's the perfect scenario for the visiting Saints.

Verdict: Away win.
