St Patrick's Athletic v Shamrock Rovers
Airtricity League, Premier Division, Richmond Park, 25.09.12, Kick-off: 7.45pm
Graham Gartland and Conor Winn both remain out of the Hoops squad with back injuries, while Conor Powell, Stephen Rice and Pat Sullivan are all suspended for the game. Ciaran Kilduff suffered an ankle injury during Saturday's EA Sports Cup final, and while it is not as serious as first suspected, he will face a late fitness test before the game. Ronan Finn will also face a fitness test before the tie as he received a couple of knocks in Saturday's cup final.
Shamrock Rovers director of football, Brian Laws said: "Losing in Saturday's cup final was very disappointing, especially to lose in the manner which we did. We gifted them two goals, and after that we always had a uphill battle. But we need to get over that quickly as we have a big game to play on Tuesday.
"We still have a lot left to play for, as not only do we need to qualify for Europe ourselves, but we can also have a big say in what goes on around in terms of all the European spots. This game is huge for both ourselves and St Patrick's and we need to make sure we are in the right frame of mind for it."
