Influential Saints defender Jamie Harris is an injury concern having missed Friday's league game in Donegal.
St Pat's will again be missing Joseph Ndo, while boss Johnny McDonnell will rotate the side that easily defeated Finn Harps at the weekend.

Kris Lindsay is suspended for the trip to Dublin.
