Liam Buckley knows that his St Patrick's Athletic side have to keep delivering away from home if they are to make a success of this season.

The Saints flirted with relegation last term, partly down to an away record which saw them win just two of their 17 games outside Richmond Park, but they already have a 100% away record this season, thanks to Friday's defeat of Bray Wanderers. Pat's are on the road again this evening, taking on Waterford, and Buckley says his players need to meet these challenges.

"We've got to go and get results in these places if we want to get to the next level," said the Saints manager.

"It'll be a tough game tonight but if we can get something out of it game, it wouldn't be a bad start."

Also tonight, Sligo Rovers are at home and face the challenge of stopping Cork City from making it three wins in a row.

"They are coming here with players in form," says Sligo boss Ger Lyttle. "We look forward to pitting our wits against the champions. Cork went on a mad run last year where they were unbeaten for over 20 games. We want to see what we can do against a side like that. We look forward to trying to get at them and us being at home gives us a massive advantage."
