Drogheda vs Shelbourne Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips 25/02/2022

An interesting match awaits us as Drogheda host Shelbourne. Drogheda finished mid table last season and will want to better that position this year. League new boys Shelbourne had a tough start to the season losing three nil to experienced side St Patrick’s. Both will see this as a match that they can win and both will doing all they can to win three precious points. This will be Drogheda’s first match of the season following their first game of the season being cancelled due to the bad weather.

Match result

Shelbourne found out how quickly life in the top league can be following a 3-0 defeat to St Patrick’s. Shelbourne have been something of a yo-yo team over the last few seasons and will be desperate to consolidate their position in the top flight this year. Drogheda will want a good start to set their season on the strongest possible footing following a disappointing season last year. Following their first game being postponed due to adverse weather they arrive here fit and raring to go. Drogheda have home advantage here and we think backing them to win here could be the play against a side who will be licking their wounds following  a chastening open day defeat.

Half time result

In a match that both teams will be desperate to win it could be worth siding with the result at half time being a draw. This game has all the hallmarks of being a potentially cagey one and could take time to open up. The second half could be a much more open affair but we like the look of the draw at half time.

Both teams to score

These teams last met back in 2019 so it has been some time since they squared off. Over the last five meetings between the sides, both teams have found the back of the net in three of the last five matches. In what could be an exceptionally even contest it could be worth siding with both teams finding the back of the net which looks a good bet to make.
