St. Pat’s v CCFC – Team news & coverage

Cork City are on the road once again on Friday evening, and they face another trip to Dublin to take on St. Patrick’s Athletic at Richmond Park.

City will be looking to correct a run of two defeats in a row, having lost 2-0 last Friday to Shamrock Rovers in Tallaght, before being eliminated from the EA Sports cup by the same scoreline by Bohemians on Monday. St. Pat’s come into the game off the back of a 1-0 defeat by Dundalk, having gone down to an injury-time winner from Sean Hoare last Friday evening in Oriel Park.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference in Bishopstown, interim City manager John Cotter said: “Pats are a good side, they were 1 up against Derry and they hung on, defended well in the second half. We know it’ll be a tough game up there; we’ll have to be at our best and play well. We’ll be concentrating on ourselves, but it’ll be a very tough game up there. “

“In our (previous) game up there, they scored from a penalty. It was a soft penalty from our side but in fairness they dug in and held on to get a good three points on the opening day. In the game down here, we played well in the first half. We created chances and Brendan Clarke made an unbelievable save from Garry Comerford which would have put us 2 up at half-time. In that period, we were conceding soft goals late in games, and that was another one. It was coming towards the 90th minute and they came away with a point.”

On the injury front, City will be hoping to have Karl Sheppard and Conor McCormack back, after both missed the game on Monday. Conor McCarthy picked up an injury in the game in Dalymount, but Cotter is hopeful that he will be available. Cian Murphy remains sidelined, while Dan Casey will be assessed ahead of the game having played on Monday after missing the previous three games.
