League Preview: Drogheda United vs. St Patrick’s Athletic

Drogheda United will be looking to snap a four-game losing streak on Friday night when they host St Patrick’s Athletic at Weavers Park. Kick-off is at 7.45 pm.

The Boynesiders have faced a tough run recently, suffering defeats to Galway United (3-2), Waterford (4-2), Shamrock Rovers (2-0), and Sligo Rovers (2-1).

They’ll be up against a St Pat’s side that they drew 0-0 with earlier this season at home but lost 1-0 to in their last meeting in May.

Team News

Ahead of the game against St. Patrick’s Athletic, Drogheda United will be without Aaron McNally due to injury, while Gary Deegan and Conor Kane remain doubtful. On a positive note, Darragh Markey is available again after serving his suspension.

Opponent’s View

St Patrick’s Athletic boss Stephen Kenny has emphasized the need for his team to be at their best for this clash against Drogheda United. The Saints are coming off a 3-2 defeat to Dundalk but will be boosted by the return of striker Ruairi Keating from a concussion.

“Drogheda’s home form has been good overall, and we’ll have to be at our best,” Kenny said. “We managed to win last Friday against Galway without playing all that well, and in the Dundalk game on Monday, we rallied strongly but were disappointed to lose.

“It’s three quick-fire games, that’s the nature of it, so we’ve got to dust ourselves down and go to Drogheda and try to get the win that we need.”

Match Expectations

Both teams will be eager to secure a victory in this fixture. Drogheda United aims to end their losing streak and improve their standings, while St Patrick’s Athletic seeks to bounce back from recent setbacks and climb the league table.

This match promises to be a competitive and exciting encounter at Weavers Park. Don’t miss it!
