Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Shamrock Rovers win to nil

Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365

With the chance to extend their buffer at the top of the table, league leaders Shamrock Rovers will travel to a struggling Finn Park on Friday night.

Starting with the Finn’s coming off the back of a 3-0 hammering away at UCD, it is no surprise that Friday’s hosts are tipped for an immediate return to the second division this season. Despite impressing in their promotion push last season, Ollie Horgan’s side are yet to pick up a single victory this season and already find themselves sat rock-bottom of the table. In what is expected to be an incredibly testing campaign, fans around Finn Park will know that they must improve on their on-going defensive issues if they’re to pull off the biggest of upsets. Horgan’s men have shipped seven in their last two and are the only team to already concede double digits this year.

As for the visitors, while Finn Harps might be enduring their own battle at the foot of the table, Shamrock Rovers have title ambitions this season. Already holding a four-point buffer at the top of the Premier Division, Stephen Bradley’s side are enjoying are three-match winning run and really impressed in their 3-0 win over Sligo Rovers last week. It has undoubtedly been their recent defensive stability most impressing Bradley. Shamrock have conceded just two goals in their opening seven matches this season and have now gone 450 minutes without conceding a league goal, a run that stems back to the 25th of February.
