Shamrock Rovers to Win

With seven wins from their last seven games, Shamrock Rovers have hit a real purple patch and fresh from success on the continent in midweek, The Hoops are our favourites to keep the victories coming at Drogheda’s expense on Sunday. The hosts have won only one of their last eight Premier Division assignments and Rovers should have the edge in terms of class and confidence this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

Shamrock Rovers have been leaning heavily on their solid defensive platform of late and under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of their last five matches as a result. In addition, Rovers have already played Drogheda twice this term and under 2.5 goals landed in both encounters. Expect a similar outcome when the teams meet for a third time on Sunday.

Highest Scoring Half: Second

Rovers have regularly taken a bit of time to get going on the road this season and they have notched twice as many goals in the second half of their away tests than the first. It’s also worth noting that six of the last seven goals scored in games between Drogheda and Rovers were notched after the interval and we’re tipping the second 45 to see more action than the first on Sunday with that in mind.

Drogheda vs Shamrock Rovers: Match Preview


Drogheda were smashed 3-0 at Derry City last time out in an unexpectedly one-sided result and Tim Clancy’s men have now lost three times in the spin in the Premier Division. At Head in the Game Park, The Drogs have been toppled three times in their last four runouts and that record could make for even more awkward reading when Rovers visit on Sunday.

Shamrock Rovers

Shamrock Rovers made light work of Albanian team Teuta Durres in midweek to book a Europa Conference League playoff double-header with Flora, while their run of four straight wins domestically has opened up some daylight between themselves and St. Patrick’s Athletic at the summit of the Premier Division.
