Damian Lynch has had an injection in a troublesome heel injury, but apart from that and Declan O'Brien and Shane Barrett aside, everyone else is fit.

For Saints, Colm Foley and Joseph Ndo have medial knee ligament damage and are out for a number of weeks.

Gary O'Neill is also out for some time having picked up a knee injury against Derry City.
