St Patrick's Athletic boss Harry Kenny hoping to keep up good run against Sligo Rovers

St Patrick's Athletic manager Harry Kenny will be hoping that his side can maintain the Indian sign over Sligo Rovers in SSE Airtricity League on Friday night.

The Bit O' Red travel to Richmond Park on the back of three defeats and a draw in their last four matches against the Saints.

The Dubliners meanwhile will be looking to build on recent victories including a 1-0 win away to Cork City in the league and a 2-1 win in the FAI Cup last week against Bray Wanderers.

"We are coming into the game off two good wins lately," Saints boss Harry Kenny told stpatsfc.com ahead of the game on Friday night.

"Last week was a tough game but we slugged it out and got the win. I was happy with the chances we created but we need to look to take more of the chances we create."

In team news, Kenny will be without the services of trio Mikey Drennan, Ciarán Kelly and Conor Clifford through suspension, while Chris Forrester is a doubt through illness. The Saints’ manager, however, is boosted by the return to fitness of Kevin Toner and Gary Shaw.

In their matches this season against Friday night's guests, the Inchicore side have claimed seven points from a possible nine, including a 1-0 win in Sligo and a 2-1 home win.

However, the last meeting between the sides saw the Saints claim a 1-1, with defender Kevin Toner equalising after Sligo had taken the lead through Jack Keaney.

"We have had some good games with Sligo already this season and we have done well against them," added Kenny. "Each game though has been tough and we have had to work hard so the lads know we will have to be in good form on Friday to pick up the points."

Meanwhile, St Patrick's Athletic's FAI Cup second round fixture against UCD will take place on Friday, August 23rd and will kick-off at 7.45pm.
