St Patrick’s Athletic will be looking to bounce back from Friday’s defeat to Bray Wanderers when they take on Derry City at Richmond Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Derry go into the game with a full squad apart from David Scullion who is ruled out with a knee injury.

City first team coach Declan Devine said: "We were disappointed with only getting a point from the game with Galway but other results went our way and we moved to the top of the table.

“It’s going to be a tough game at Richmond Park, they are a good side and will be sore after losing to such a late goal on Friday night.

“Mark Farren and Clive Delaney are both available for selection again after serving suspensions and that will give us more options."

Saints boss Jeff Kenna remains without Gary Dempsey, Mark Leech (both broken leg), Stephen Maher (knee), Bobby Ryan (groin) and Gareth O’Connor (thigh).

And Latvian striker Gints Freimans damaged his knee in a reserve game on Saturday and will also miss out.

Kenna said: “It was disappointing to lose out in the way we did but we now have the chance to bounce back. Derry are going well, this will be a massive test for us but we’re looking forward to it.”

Easter is coming early for St Pat’s supporters as each fan will receive a free Cadbury’s Creme Egg courtesy of Musgraves on entry to Richmond Park.
