St Patrick’s win vs Finn Harps

With 20 points and four sides separating them in the League of Ireland Premier Division, Finn Harps and St Patrick’s Athletic will square off on Friday night.

The hosts currently occupy the relegation playoff place and sit just two points above the bottom side University College Dublin, while their visitors find themselves fourth and within touching distance of the top three after a victory last time out against UCD.

St Patrick’s go into this game in much better form and boast the second-best away form in the division, while Finn Harps home form is less than to be desired having only picked up one league win this season.  

We predict a comfortable win for St Patrick’s.

Dundalk win vs Shelbourne

Seeking to pick up a seventh consecutive victory across all competitions, Dundalk square off with Shelbourne at the Shelbourne Football Club Stadium on Friday.

The hosts, on the other hand, will head into the game seeking to get one over the Lilywhites, having failed to win any of the last 13 meetings between the sides since 2012.

Shelbourne have suffered a slump in recent weeks, losing and failing to score in each of their last two outings. Dundalk, by contrast, head into the game in superb form having claimed six wins from six, staying unbeaten in nine straight outings.

We predict a one-sided affair with the visitors coming out victorious.

19:45 Friday

Shamrock Rovers win vs Bohemians

Shamrock Rovers are currently flying at the top of the League of Ireland Premier Division and will be looking to extend their lead when they face Bohemians for a Dublin Derby on Friday.

Shamrock Rovers have beaten their opponents twice already this year and will feel confident for this one due to having the best home form in the division. Bohemians have the seventh worst away from having only picked up two wins on their travels.

We expect Shamrock to walk away with a comfortable victory in this derby with the likes of Graham Burke returning for the Hoops.
