Shamrock Rovers Preview – Can Shamrock press on?

Friday evening’s hosts, Shamrock Rovers, currently sit top of the Irish Premier Division with a four-point margin between themselves and 2nd placed Bohemians but they have a good opportunity to further extend their lead at the summit of the domestic top flight when they entertain Shelbourne.

Shamrock Rovers have made a quick start to this new Premier Division campaign, winning seven of their first eight matches of this new season, while they still hold a 100% winning record on home turf at their Tallaght Stadium with impressive stats of 3-0-0 12/3 which included victories over Cork City 6-0, Dundalk 3-2 and a 3-1 win over Finn Harps.

The bigger picture shows that Shamrock are unbeaten in their last 12 matches overall, while at home, Rovers are unbeaten in their last 10 matches and have won the previous seven meetings on the trot against Shelbourne.

Our betting suggestion:

Shelbourne Preview – Can Shelbourne hold their own?

Friday’s visitors, Shelbourne, occupy a much more modest league position of 6th place in the Irish Premier Division in what has been an indifferent start to this new season, winning three, drawing 1 and losing four to date.

Having collected just one win from their last five matches overall though, this could be a tough night at the office for Shelbourne whose only success during this recent period was a 1-0 win on the road at bottom club, Finn Harps, but defeats against Bohemians, Waterford and Sligo Rovers suggest they will have their work cut out against Shamrock Rovers.

In addition, Shelbourne have managed to pick up just two wins from their previous 10 matches on the road in the Premier Division and have been second-best to Shamrock in previous exchanges.
