TEAM NEWS: SAINTS Vs Sligo Rovers (Tuesday 7.45pm, Inchicore)

St Patrick's Athletic host Sligo Rovers in the SSE Airtricity League on Tuesday night in Richmond Park with Liam Buckley's side looking for three points to move up the league standings (kick-off 7.45pm).

Following a weekend without action due to the late postponement of their game with Finn Harps, Tuesday's match for Pat's will be their first since their 4-1 EA Sports Cup Final triumph over Limerick two weekends ago.

In team news, Liam Buckley will be without the services of former Sligo player David Cawley (Collarbone), Keith Treacy (Hamstring) and Jack Bayly through injury, though they are boosted by the return of defender Darren Dennehy to training.

"It will be good to back in action following the lay-off we've had since the Limerick match. It was disappointing not to play on Friday having made the trip to Ballybofey but you have to accept the decision the officials made," Buckley told stpatsfc.com when referring to the Saints' match being called off against Finn Harps on Friday night.

The Saints face the Bit O'Red for a third time this season having drawn and lost to Dave Robertson's side, and Buckley admits another tough game awaits the Saints.



"Sligo have really picked up their form in the second half of the season. They got a good point the other night against Cork City and have been performing well recently.

There was little between us in Inchicore earlier in the season and only a goal separated us in the Showgrounds so we expect another tight game that could be decided by a goal."
