Match Preview: Rovers take on St Patrick’s Athletic on Sunday

Sligo Rovers are back in action once again tomorrow as we travel to Dublin to take on St Patrick’s Athletic in Inchicore at 5pm.

The game is Rovers’ 11th fixture in six weeks having gone through a busy European and Domestic run.

Rovers have won two games in a row having defeated Bohemians in the league last Sunday and Viking in The Europa Conference League Third Round Qualifier Second Leg on Thursday evening.

Manager John Russell looks forward to the game:

‘’It is a big game tomorrow evening.

‘’St Pats are a good side and sit just above us in the table so we know we’ll have to be at our best to get a result.

‘’We come into the game in good form. It’s important we build on our recent performances. 

‘’We’re expecting big away support tomorrow. Our fans have been fantastic this year and we hope we can put on a top performance for them’’.

In team news, Garry Buckley is sidelined for a number of months with a serious knee injury. Colm Horgan and Seamas Keogh remain out with long term muscle injuries while Russell will need to assess his squad over the weekend before making a final decision on a number of players who are carrying knocks, including David Cawley and Aidan Keena who missed Thursday’s game.

The game kicks off at 5pm and tickets can be bought on the turnstiles.
