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.

Linfield boss David Jeffrey has no such luxury as he has the bare bones of a squad as his long season draws to an end.

Jim Ervin is ruled out after suffering cruciate ligament damage in the weekend's league clash with Glentoran and long-term injury absentees Tim Mouncey and Tim McCann are still out.

Kris Lindsay is suspended for the trip to Dublin.
