WEâ€™LL BE UP FOR IT - JEFF Kenna
St Patrick's Athletic take on Russian side Krylya Sovetov of Russia in the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League at Richmond Park on Thursday 30th July, kick off 7.45pm.
Darragh Ryan faces a one match ban following his red card in the last round against Valletta of Malta.
Gints Friemanis (hand) and Mark Quigley (jaw) remain out injured.
Both Gary Dempsey and Mark Leech have resumed full training this week and though unlikely to start may well feature.
â€śTraining this week has gone really well, all the players realise the scale of the challenge we face and they're really looking forward to it.
For me as a manager and for the players it's great to be involved in European nights like this it will be difficult job for us but we'll be positive and we'll be up for it on the night.
Whether we counter their play or play our own game it's important that we don't concede a goal.
We'd love to score but it will be a difficult task in itself going over there so it's important to keep the tie alive.
They are a really good side with plenty of internationals and with the support of a fantastic budget but as I say - we'll be up for itâ€ť â€“ Jeff Kenna.
With a limited seated capacity for Richmond Park only 1,000 tickets remain to be sold.
Supporters are asked to purchase their match tickets early to avoid disappointment on the night.
