Sligo and St Pat's seek form
SLIGO Rovers and St Patrick's Athletic may have cruised into the Setanta Sports Cup semi-finals at the expense of Irish League sides Crusaders and Ballinamallard United - but both sides have not set the SSE Airtricity League alight this season.
St Pat's, who hammered the 'Mallards 6-0 over two legs, sit in a modest fifth position in the early Airtricity League standings while Sligo are three places behind them after three games.
The Bit O' Red, who have reached four consecutive Setanta Cup semi-finals, signed attacker Sean Maguire on loan, but he has yet to show his Waterford United form.
Sligo boss Ian Baraclough, though, will be hoping Eric Odhiambo can hit another hat-trick in the All-Ireland competition.
Sligo will have home advantage for tonight's semi-final first leg (8pm). The sides met earlier this season in the President's Cup when a goal from former Republic of Ireland international Keith Fahey settled the tie.
Like Sligo, St Pat's have yet to get their name on the Setanta Sports Cup.
