They have already beaten Limerick this season, winning 1-0 at Thomond Park in March, but Stuart Taylor insists the Super Blues won’t have any fear against the Saints.

“We don’t fear anybody and that’s not being disrespectful. We respect everybody no matter what position they’re in within the league. We respect everybody but we don’t fear anybody and that shows the confidence and the belief we’ve got within the squad.

“I don’t want to put a jinx on it but up until now, any game we’ve lost we’ve only lost by one goal, so that says a lot about our character as well. We just need to keep that record going and we need to turn draws into wins, that’s the biggest thing.”

It will be Limerick’s second trip to Dublin in a week after they defeated Glenville 3-0 in the FAI Cup at Home Farm on Saturday 1.

Two goals from Rory Gaffney and a Stephen Bradley free kick enabled the Super Blues to maintain an interest in both domestic cup competitions following their recent win over Waterford United in the EA Sports Cup.

Taylor has plenty of regard for the cups and was pleased that his team avoided being turned over by Leinster Senior League opposition.

“I was over the moon with the performance on Saturday against Glenville. I thought the players dictated the game from start to finish and some of the passing movements were enjoyable to watch.

“They’re always going to be difficult games when you play cup games no matter what team you play against at what level.”
