Preview: Rovers look to bounce back in Inchicore

Sligo Rovers face St Patrick’s Athletic in a re-arranged Premier Division match in Richmond Park on Monday night.

The game was deferred due to the Saints progressing in the FAI Cup.

Kick-off will be at the earlier time of 7.30pm.

Rovers recorded their last away win at the venue and also had a 2-1 success early in the season in The Showgrounds. Pat’s won the previous meeting in Sligo.

In team news Reece Hutchinson (knee), Robbie Burton (suspended) and Greg Bolger (suspended) miss out.

Manager John Russell said: “We’re delighted to have a game first and foremost because we have to try and put things right from Friday night.

“It wasn’t acceptable. We were second best, we lacked energy and intensity.

“Maximum desire, working hard and doing the basics at every opportunity is what we look for. We didn’t see that throughout the team. We will pick a team for these final three games based on those characteristics.

“We’ve done well in games with St Pat’s this season. We’ve shown our quality in two wins we have had.

“It’s extremely important we show it in these final games.”
