📰 Team News: St. Patrick's Athletic

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the lone fitness concern for the St. Patrick's Athletic boss Seán O'Connor to be concerned with due to a largely intact group of players. Tom Grivosti (Cruciate ligament injury) misses out.

In all likelihood, Saints look set to employ a 4-2-3-1 system this time featuring Daniel Rogers, Joe Redmond, Conor Keeley, Luke Turner, Anto Breslin, Chris Forrester, Jamie Lennon, Mason Melia, Brandon Kavanagh, Aaron Bolger and Ruairi Keating.

📰 Team News: Derry City

Derry City boss Ruaidhrí Higgins has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Sadou Diallo (Knee injury) and Colm Whelan (Cruciate ligament injury) will not be playing here.

It’s our belief that The Candystripes will likely elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, choosing Brian Maher, Ronan Boyce, Mark Connolly, Cameron McJannett, Ciarán Coll, Adam O'Reilly, Will Patching, Daniel Kelly, Paul McMullan, Ben Doherty and Patrick Hoban.

🔮 Prediction

In our view, St. Patrick's Athletic might need a bit of good fortune to hit the back of the net against this Derry City outfit who we reckon should get a goal themselves and run out victorious.

That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive game with a 0-1 win for Derry City at the end of the 90 minutes.

Looking forward to this.
