You can’t call St Patricks’s Athletic boring that’s an absolute given.

Pats have scored six goals in there last two games and rescued a point with a last minute equaliser on Friday night. The problem with the excitement they create is their unpredictability.

A fine win in Galway was followed up by almost dropping all the points at home to bottom of the table Longford Town. As it is the rescued point leaves them languishing in sixth place a full fourteen points behind Dundalk.

Any pretensions of a title challenge are long gone and worryingly an improving Sligo Rovers are hot on their heels. Even Finn Harps aren’t too far away despite a 0-7 defeat at home to Dundalk on Friday night.

That equalled Harps’ record defeat in the League Of Ireland but a win against the Inchicore side would bring them level with Sligo and only four points behind Pats. It is hard to envisage though with just one win in the Donegal side’s last nine games.

They are carrying a raft of injuries at the moment and a long midweek trip to Dublin will take it’s toll. Barry Molloy picked up a knock against Dundalk and if he is added to the list it will be a big loss.

It’s much more likely that Pats will continue their fine goalscoring form unless that dreaded unpredictability kicks in once more.
