Sligo Rovers entertain St Patrick's Athletic in tonight's eircom League of Ireland Premier Division clash at the Showgrounds (kick-off 8pm).

Apart from the suspension of Chris Butler, Sligo boss Paul Cook has a fully fit squad to choose from for tonight's trip to Inchicore.

Romould Boco returns from injury having missed the 3-0 victory over Bray Wanderers, although Cook will be a spectator himself as he serves the second of a four-match touchline ban.

Pat's must plan without Stephen Paisley as he is serving a suspension, although Damien Lynch returns to the squad from injury.

David Partridge, Joe O'Cearuill, Joseph Ndo and John Frost remain out as they are all injured.

Saints manager Johnny McDonnell said: "This is the first of the second series of league matches. At this stage last year we had 26 points on the board, the same as we have now.

"But we only secured 13 points in the second phase of games.

"We really have to improve on that if we are going to be in serious contention this season."
