Bohemians may have found their shooting boots but not nearly as much as St Patricks Athletic.

Bohs went seven games without hitting the back of the net but ended that poor run with a 2-0 FAI Cup win over Galway Utd. Pats have turned around their own poor slump but in much more impressive fashion.

After losing three league games on the trot without scoring a single goal they have won three of their last four games. In that period they bagged eighteen goals although to be fair the 8-0 win over Pike Rovers should be taken in context.

The fact that these goals have been scored without the services of the prolific Christy Fagan makes it all the more remarkable. Youngsters like Mark Timlin and Sam Verdon have really stepped up to the plate while this season’s signing from Cork City, Billy Dennehy, has scored his fair share from midfield.

They will likely head into this match without the services of Fagan and possibly their joint second top scorer, Conan Byrne. But having to learn to not rely on their goalscoring talisman appears to have worked in their favour.

The head to head stats show that Pats have won four of the last six meetings and, while Bohs shouldn’t be discounted completely, they look capable of causing them trouble once more.

A concern would be the state of the pitch at Dalymount Park which has come in for an awful lot of criticism. It could hamper the brand of passing football that Pats employ. It has certainly hampered goal production so far this season with only one of six Premier Division matches seeing both teams score.
