Waterford FC will be hoping to strengthen their bid for European football this evening when the Blues play host to St. Patrick’s Athletic in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
Waterford who lost out to Cork City in the Munster derby last weekend, are currently six points clear in 3rd position ahead of this evening’s clash against the Saints.
It’ll be the third meeting this season between the sides with both sides recording home wins.
Bastien Héry and Izzy Akinade have signed new deals to keep them at the club for the 2019 season.
Akinade told WLR Sport he’s looking forward to this evening’s vital clash.
Izzy said moving nine points clear in 3rd position on the league table would be huge.
Waterford midfielder Gavan Holohan says another three points would be massive.
Kick off at the RSC is at 7:45pm, Matt Keane will have updates here on WLR.
Elsewhere this evening, Dundalk can move top of the table this evening.
Stephen Kenny’s side will leapfrog Cork City if they beat second from bottom Limerick at Oriel Park.
Derry City are away to Bohemians.
