Defensive duo out for leaders St Pat's

League leaders St Patrick's Athletic welcome Galway United to Richmond Park for tonight’s Airtricity League clash, kick-off 7.45pm.

Saints defenders Shane Guthrie and Damian Lynch both miss out through suspension.

Garrett Coughlan (leg) remains on the long-term injury list, Neil Harney is out with an ankle injury and Thomas Crawley has been called into the first team squad from the A Championship side.

Assistant manager John Gill said: “Galway are on a very good run and had a good result away to Drogheda last week.

“They will be dangerous opponents - we’ve beaten them twice already this season and like a wounded foe they will no doubt be out to prove a point.

“We’re on a decent run ourselves and we need to keep that momentum going. This is a critical part of the season and we really need to maintain our form, especially our home form.”

Galway will be hoping to build on last week’s victory away in Drogheda and boss Sean Connor will have an almost fully fit squad to chose from.

United may have Derek O'Brien back after a stomach muscle problem forced him to miss the last nine matches.
