Kenny Shiels and his team begin a busy schedule of 8 games in a month on Friday night as they welcome St Pats to the Brandywell (kick off 7.30).
The game is to be televised “live” on RTE but the City boss will be hoping for another full house as they bid to build on two impressive wins over Limerick and Bray.
“At the Brandywell it’s been great. The supporters have played a big part. People talk about the pitch, the supporters and the environment, but the players need to get a bit of praise for it, because they have performed well and I hope they can continue to perform” said Shiels.
“St Pats are a hugely experienced team. They have fantastic players throughout the squad and we will certainly have our work cut out to get a result.”
“We’ve had to change parts of our game; we’ve lost quality players to the other top clubs. We haven’t fully arrived yet and we’ve got another tough game on our hands.”
“The one thing I would say is that these are two teams who like to get the ball down and play. I would hope it will be an entertaining watch for the supporters.”
