?Chelsea continue their pre-season tour of Ireland tomorrow, as they face Dublin-based side St. Patrick's Athletic, in the second of two fixtures during their brief visit to the Emerald Isle.

St. Pat's will need to defend well and wait for their opportunity, like Bohemians did on Wednesday, to stand any chance of avoiding a defeat here.

St. Pat's on the other hand could probably do without the game, considering that they are entering the last third of the League of Ireland season, which is played over summer, and also have Europa League commitments.

However, it is unlikely that lightning will strike twice, so expect Chelsea to run away easy winners at Richmond Park.

New manager Frank Lampard will be hoping that the game can increase the Blues' match sharpness, ahead of a potentially difficult season, owing to club's transfer ban.

St. Pat's come into the game following a similarly disappointing 2-0 defeat against Swedish side Norrkoping, in a Europa League first round qualifying match.

Although it is only a pre-season game, Chelsea will surely be very keen on getting their first win under Frank Lampard, so expect a strong showing from the Blues.
