St Pats vs Rovers

Sligo Rovers take on St Patrick's Athletic in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division on Friday night in Richmond Park.

The Bit o' Red go into the game level on points with the Saints in the table.

The teams played out a 1-1 draw in The Showgrounds earlier this season.

In team news, manager Gerard Lyttle will definitely be without Daniel Kearns due to a thigh problem.

Lyttle said: "We were taught a lesson in the second half last Friday. We played well up until the first goal and from then on we made mistakes and were punished for them.

"We switched off and have to take a message from it. It was a bad night after the positive result against Limerick.

"We had been doing well and have to get back to what we had been doing prior to that bad second period against Dundalk.

"Pat's had a good win last week having previously done better away from home.

"Our own record on the road hasn't been good and while there are travel demands and preparation can be better with long journeys, it has been that way forever for Sligo Rovers so it's no excuse. It's something we have to change and start picking up points away.

"Our home form shows we are capable and it's something we want to change from here on. We feel we can get a positive result and finding a more consistent performance is what we want from the group."
