St Patrick's Athletic will be looking to make it five from five as they welcome third-placed Derry City to Richmond Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Saints top the table after four wins on the bounce but they will face tough opposition from in-form Derry who are also unbeaten after four games.

Jamie Harris is available again for Pat's boss Johnny McDonnell but Joseph Ndo is still out injured.

McDonnell looks set to continue with sub keeper Brendan Clarke who is keeping Barry Ryan out of the starting eleven after keeping two clean sheets in a row.

The Candystripes will be confident going into tonight's clash in Inchicore but boss Stephen Kenny has several injury concerns ahead of the fixture.

Darren Quigley (hand) Kevin Deery (knee), Mark McChrystal (metatarsal), Sean Hargan (ankle) and Sam Morrow (cruciate) are all out injured for City.
