Apart long term injuried Coughlan ( midf. 5atts. +4 as sub 1goal) all other players fit in home team
They are first in table with 42 points and undefeated in last four matches, but, after two consecutive draws, they have the same points of Shamrock and only two points more then Bohemians.
So, it needs a win to remain leaders in Eircom league, moreover because - with direct clash between Shamrock and Bohemians in this round, they could gain some points of advantage, if Shamrock will not win.
And this match is a good occasion to do it.
First, St.Patrick's, with 8-2-2 21/8 is the strongest team at home with second best home attack and defense.
Second, Drogheda is poor, second from bottom, second worst attack and defence, worst away defence, two consecutive matches lost, the last of them at home against the poorest team in league, Bray Wanderers.
Third, to aggravate the situation of Drogheda, the team tonight will have many players out or in doubt.
Infact they have unavailable Alan McNally (def. 23atts. 2goals), Corrie Treacy (14atts. 1goal), Eric McGill (midf. 13atts +2 as sub), Paul Crowley (striker 18atts. +1 as sub 3 goals), all suspended and all usually regulars;
In doubt are Glenn Fitzpatrick ( striker 16atts. +1 as sub 2 goals), Brendan McGill (midf. 15atts. 1goal), Darragh McNamara (midf. 0atts.), Jamie harris (def. 12atts. +2 as sub).
So, the second worst team in league at home of a supermotivated leader that is the best home team in league and with suspended or in doubt 8 players, most of them important regulars: i think that St.Patrick's could trash Drogheda tonight
