Team News: v St Patrick’s Athletic

Sligo Rovers are in action for the second time in four days this Bank Holiday Monday as St Patrick’s Athletic visit the Showgrounds. 

Supporters are asked to note the earlier kick off time of 5pm. 

Rovers will again be without the services of Simon Power and Will Fitzgerald. While Nando Pijnaker and John Mahon remain unavailable. 

JR Wilson will serve a suspension due to an accumulation of yellow cards. 

While Wilson Waweru will be assessed before the game.

Rovers are looking to recover from Friday’s defeat to Waterford as they face Pat’s for the second time this year. 

Manager John Russell wants his players to bounce back on Monday afternoon. 

“Friday was hugely frustrating for us and our supporters. We do not like losing games and the players were all hurting in the dressing room afterwards as they knew we had enough chances to win the game”, he noted. 

“Monday gives us an opportunity in front of our home fans to get a result and build some momentum again. We need everyone in the ground to get right behind us.”
