This is an extremely important match for Finn Harps. They are just above the relegation zone with 40 points like Waterford, which is in the relegation zone. There are only 2 games left until the end, including this game. On the other hand, St. Patrick’s occupies the 2nd position and has already secured qualifications for the Conference League. Several players are with their national teams, among them the first goalkeeper Jaros Vitzeslav (33/0). Coach Alan Mathews has played in a changed lineup in the last few games, and probably in this match will be the same. The points mean more to the guests who won the first match this season at home by 3:1.
