St. Patrick’s Ath v Derry City – Fri 26th Oct – KO 7.45pm – Richmond Park
SSE Airtricity League
The Candystripes complete what has been an inconsistent campaign on Friday night when they travel to Richmond Park to take on St. Patrick’s Athletic (KO 7.45).
It hasn’t been the best of weeks for the City boss following that reverse at the Carlisle Grounds however Shiels remained upbeat ahead of the clash.
“No game is a ‘dead rubber’ in my book and even if it’s only pride at stake at times then so be it. We had so many chances to close the game out in Bray and were caught by a late sucker-punch, something that has affected us a few times this season.”
The home side are likely to be buoyed by the arrival of new manager, Harry Kenny, and the Inchicore outfit will be keen to give him the perfect start.
For City however it is all about trying to finish on a high before the hard work begins over the winter.
Kenny Shiels indicated this morning that he will stick with the same squad that lost at Bray on Monday, although both Nicky Low and Rory Hale are doubtful starters.
