St Patrick’s Athletic will continue their defence of the EA Sports Cup against Cork City after being drawn against the Leesiders in the quarter-final of the competition.
The Saints are the reigning champions, having successfully defended the trophy in 2016, and they booked their place in the last eight with a penalty-win over Bray Wanderers. Cork, meanwhile, progressed to the quarters after sweeping aside Munster rivals Limerick as their impressive start to the 2017 campaign continues.
