Eamonn Collins has resigned as manager of St Patrick's Athletic after just over a year in charge.

The club has slid to second from bottom in the eircom League Premier Division, having lost five of their opening nine league games.

Collins said he had taken the team as far as possible while working under a constrained budget.

Martin Russell and Paul Osam will take over on a temporary basis for their trip to Derry City on Saturday night.
