Liam Buckley has predicted a “helter skelter” return leg when St Patrick’s welcome Siroki Brijeg to Richmond Park in the Europa League on Thursday (St Patrick’s 10/11, draw 12/5, Siroki Brijeg 3/1 – 90 minutes bet365).
The Irish Premier League side took a 12th-minute lead and held a numerical advantage for over half of the first leg when the home side were reduced to 10 men.
Saints’ hopes of an away win were shattered when Wagner scored a stoppage-time equaliser and now the focus is on Buckley’s men to get the job done.
A glamour tie against Hannover 96 awaits the winners of Thursday’s game and Buckey does not want his players to squander a golden opportunity to mix it with the big boys (St Patrick’s 5/1 – Ireland Premier Division outright bet365).
He told the official club website: “At 1-1, the game is back in the mix. They had 10 men for most of last week, so they struggled for large parts of the game.
“However, I’ve no doubt that they see themselves getting through the tie so it’s going to be a helter skelter game with a lot at stake for both clubs.
“But if we perform like we did last week, we’ll be right in the tie. We have the away goal and a good defensive record this year, a clean sheet and we’re through. So hopefully we can get through and play Hannover 96 next week.”
