No Lim-its for Saints

St Patrick's Athletic head to Limerick this evening in search of more points to aid their climb up the Premier Division table .

The Saints will be looking for a second successive win in a week at Jackman Park (KO 6.30) following last Tuesday's 2-0 victory against Derry City thanks to goals from Greg Bolger and Morgan Langley, while Limerick will be hoping for a first league win of the season on the back of two draws in their last two outings. Saints' manager Liam Buckley (above), however, expects a severe test from Limerick, the Saints having having drawn and lost in their last two games away from home against the Shannonsiders.

"Tuesday was a good victory for us," Buckley said, "however we now need to move on from it and get some consistency in our performances."

Killian Brennan and Conor McCormack are back in contention to play having served one match suspensions following their dismissals last week in the Saints' defeat to Dundalk.

In today's other Premier Division game, Bray Wanderers play host to Cork City at the Carlisle Grounds (KO 5.45).
