After succumbing to a frustrating 2-0 defeat by St. Patrick's on Friday night, Finn Harps will target some quick-fire revenge here. The two sides are poised to face off once more, though this time, it's in Ireland's FAI Cup competition.

Last season, St. Patrick's were left embarrassed in a second-round defeat by University College Dublin. In the previous round, Harps were narrow losers against Shamrock Rovers.

Can Ollie Horgan galvanise his players and avoid another first-round exit to start a new week here? Or will they suffer a repeat performance against a side with lofty ambitions this season? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Finn Harps vs St. Patrick's Betting Tips

First-half goals from Georgie Kelly were enough for St. Patrick's to ease to victory against Finn Harps last time out.

Having joined from league rivals Dundalk, the 23-year-old couldn't believe his luck during an evening where sloppy defending was duly punished. Robbie Benson showed good feet and spatial awareness to weave past a few challenges before teeing him up inside the area for his first strike.

He completed his brace before the half-hour mark, after Kosovar Sadiki's poor attempted backpass was pounced upon with ruthless efficiency. It'll be interesting to see whether Stephen O'Donnell rotates his side too much after last week's comfortable win.

He replaced both Benson and goalscorer Kelly in the latter stages of the second-half, with the three points essentially sealed. Finn Harps' head coach Horgan meanwhile, has a few decisions to make regarding team selection. Does he make wholesale changes defensively after his backline were cut open at times on Friday, or stay patient?

After all, this is knockout football and anything can happen. He made all five changes and although unclear which specific players are affected, will likely tinker with his team here.

Finn Harps vs St. Patrick's Correct Score Predictions

After their win on Friday, I feel compelled to back St. Patrick's here. They have won 11 of 15 H2H meetings against Finn Harps, who have struggled this season.
