Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Shelbourne win

Odds: 5/4 @ 1xBet

Looking to extend their buffer at the top of the Premier Division table on Friday night, Shelbourne will welcome Galway to Tolka Park.

Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been an iconic Premier Division romp this season, Shelbourne are riding what has been a sensational purple patch. Last seen heading into Ireland’s fortnight interval with a 1-0 victory away at Waterford, Damien Duff’s men find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Opening June with another 1-0 win against former champions Dundalk, the one-time Chelsea star has seen his squad gain a string of plaudits. Making a major statement last month as they secured a thumping 2-0 victory away at Irish heavyweights Shamrock Rovers, the Reds have collected 15 points from their previous six Premier Division appearances. With that flurry stemming all the way back to a 1-1 stalemate against Drogheda on May 10th, Shelbourne have suffered just a single loss from any of their last 11 consecutive outings. It should also be highlighted, Duff’s men have lost just a sole showdown at Tolka Park since the middle of April.

As for the visitors, making a thumping return to winning ways prior to the fortnight break as they secured a routine 3-0 victory against Drogheda, Galway will be looking to use that performance as a platform to build on. Remarkably sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the European spots, John Caulfield’s side will be relishing a trip to Tolka Park on Friday night. However, pencilled in as an outside contender when they travel to the Premier Division leaders this weekend, the former Cork City boss will be hoping for his squad to find some recent stability on their travels. Last seen on their travels getting hit with a 2-0 defeat against Derry, Caulfield’s men have won just a pair of their previous seven Premier Division matchups away from Eamonn Deacy Park. It should also be noted, suffering a 1-0 loss when they last travelled to Shelbourne back on March 4th, Galway have lost all of their previous five consecutive Premier Division trips to Tolka Park.
