Both teams will be without some regular defenders tonight. For Saints, Conor McCormack is suspended, while goalkeeper Clarke, O'Brien and McGuinness are all very doubtful having already missed their last few games through injuries. Pats made poor start to the season losing two of their opening three games and I’d expect them to come out fully motivated tonight and to start attacking from the off. In Fagan and Kilduff they have some of the best strikers in the league and hopefully we’ll see some goals coming from them tonight.
Derry City were without their captain McBride in their last game against Sligo, while Dean Jarvis went off injured in that game. On the positive side for City, two strikers Anthony Elding and Cillian Morrison who were injured at the beginning of the season have recovered and both are fit and ready to start tonight.
Odds on over goals are just too high, I think, considering defensive problems in both teams.
