UCD bid to halt losing streak without duo

UCD bid to halt losing streak without duo

UCD will be looking to bounce back from their third defeat in a row as they take on St Patrick's Athletic tonight at the UCD Bowl, kick-off 7.45pm.

Robbie Creevy misses out for UCD as he is struggling with an injury, while Michael Leahy will miss the match due to suspension following his fourth booking of the season.

UCD boss Martin Russell said: “The St Pat’s visit gives us a right test. There were positives to be taken from the Bohemians game even though we lost.

“We will be looking to bring them into our match against St Pat’s and continue our development while picking up more points.”

Former Students Evan McMillan, David McMillan and Brian Shortall will be looking to put one over their former team-mates, while Saints boss Pete Mahon returns to his old stomping ground.

Mahon has a strong squad to choose from ahead of the clash, however, Saints remain without captain Conor Kenna who is still struggling with a knee injury.

Last week, I shared my lockdown experience. I asked for a more uniform approach, should there be another lockdown. I explained that I worked mornings. Maybe I should have been more specific: working 8am to 1pm without a break, I gave feedback and covered the curriculum, using our school’s online platform. In the afternoons, I looked after my three kids (all under ten) while my husband worked. It was a challenging time for everyone and the uncertainty around what I should have been doing as a teacher made it harder.Diary of an Irish teacher: I want to get back to work.
