There is just one match in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division tonight, with Dundalk's visit to the Ryan McBride Brandywell postponed due to international call-ups.

Waterford host St Patrick's Athletic in a match broadcast live on WATCHLOI. Just three points separates six teams in the middle of the table, both sides could go level on points with third place Lilywhites

Waterford v St Patrick's Athletic, RSC, 7.45pm,

John Sheridan's side have been made to pay for shipping late goal, including last time out when they conceded three to Finn Harps.

Sheridan had eyes on European football and could still do so if they can tighten up their defence. 

The Saints quickly found themselves 2-0 down to Bohemians two weeks ago, and never looked like coming from behind. 

With just three wins from nine, Stephen O'Donnell will look to vastly improve on that in the final series of games. 

Team news

Waterford: Sheridan will be hoping to to call on the services of former Republic of Ireland international Daryl Murphy, who joined the club for the second time this week.

St Patrick's Athletic: O'Donnell has a fully fit squad to select from, with defender Shane Griffin returning from a one match suspension as the side look for a reversal in fortunes from the 1-0 defeat at home to Waterford back in February.

What they said

John Sheridan (Waterford manager): "Every club in the country would be delighted to have someone of Daryl's calibre at their club. His attitude and professionalism speaks for itself.

"I’m hoping he can impart some of his knowledge of the game on this dressing room and give the lads a much-needed boost. As I’ve said, we’ve a good bunch here capable of competing at the top end. Some results and decisions haven’t gone our way but we’re working on changing that now."

Stephen O'Donnell (St Patrick's Athletic manager):  "Our response has to be better and the big thing when you go through out results this season is consistency.

"We need to have a mentality where we churn out performances week on week.  It's no good getting to a good level one week, and then drop the following week.

There's a lot of teams taking points off each other, but we just need to focus on ourselves and get that consistency and level of performance over 90 minutes.
