TEAM NEWS: Saints V Shels (Saturday 7.30pm)

St Patrick's Athletic host rivals Shelbourne on Saturday night in the SSE Airtricity League in Richmond Park (kick-off 7:30pm).

Stephen O'Donnell's side will be looking to pick up the three points in the Dublin derby, with the Saints having kept two clean sheets in their last two games as they look to jump the Reds and climb the league table.

In team news, the Saints will be without Republic of Ireland under 21 international midfielder Jamie Lennon as he serves a one match suspension. Otherwise Pat's have a full squad to select from.

"It's an intriguing game as the table is tight with the same distance for us to fourth position as it is to ninth position," head coach Stephen O'Donnell told stpatsfc.com.

"Shels have been very competitive this year and this is one all the players and staff are looking forward to. We know how tough it will be given Shels' good results recently in Tallaght against Shamrock Rovers and having only lost narrowly against Dundalk.

"It's one that it's a shame the fans are missing out on. Wherever they are watching it from though, we hope that we can make sure that it's the St Pat's fans that are cheering on Saturday night at the end with three points in the bag."
