Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Richmond Park will host Friday’s Premier Division game between St. Patricks and Dundalk, the two teams who aim to represent Ireland in European competitions next term. The Saints have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team sharing the spoils with Finn Harps, losing to Shamrock Rovers, while beating Drogheda 3-0 in their last league match. St. Patricks aim to move closer to the Conference League berth, but this will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side.
Sam Curtis remain in the recovery room, while both Patrick Barrett and Jamie Lennon are rated doubtful after the duo returned to training. TheLilywhites aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Drogheda, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Fit-again forward Patrick Hoban is widely expected to return to Dundalk’s starting XI.
