Dundalk FC face trip to Pat’s in EA Sports Cup
Dundalk FC have been drawn to face St Patrick’s Athletic away in the second round of the EA Sports Cup.
The tie will be played at Richmond Park on either Monday April 1st or Tuesday April 2nd.
The two sides also met in last year’s second round in Inchicore where Dundalk advanced 8-7 on penalties after an entertaining 4-4 draw after extra-time. Both sides have changed managers since then with Vinny Perth stepping up to replace Stephen Kenny for Dundalk and Pat’s now playing under Harry Kenny, who replaced Liam Buckley in the off season.
Dundalk are next in action on Friday night when they travel to face Derry City in the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.
This tie means Dundalk will face Pat’s twice in a matter of days with the sides also set to meet in a league match at Richmond Park on Friday April 5th.
