Under 2.5 Goals

Shamrock Rovers were replaced at the top of the table by Dublin rivals St. Patrick’s Athletic this week and The Hoops’ recent regression in the final third has contributed greatly to their plight. Stephen Bradley’s men have scored one or fewer goals in six of their last seven matches while a further five of those games produced under 2.5 total goals. Expect another cagey affair at the Tallaght Stadium on Friday.

Half Time Result: Draw

Tim Clancy’s dogged Drogheda United team have been holding their own on the road this season and they have been trailing just twice in eight away matches at the interval this term. The Drogs have the tools to make life awkward for their hosts again this week and with Rovers’ goal-scoring problems a factor, it’s worth backing the teams to be level at half-time on Friday.

Drogheda United +2 Asian Handicap

Shamrock Rovers have look uncharacteristically flat in the final third over the past couple of months, netting one or fewer goals in six of their last seven games. On their own patch, The Hoops have found the net just twice in their last three games and with cutting edge in short supply, Drogheda look an excellent price in the +2 handicap stakes.

Shamrock Rovers vs Drogheda United: Match Preview

Shamrock Rovers

Shamrock Rovers made a blistering start to the 2021 season having lifted the Premier Division trophy last year, though their form has tailed off in recent weeks. Their 1-0 reverse at local antagonists Bohemians was a particularly bitter pill to swallow, while The Hoops are also on a three-match winless run at home.

Drogheda United

Drogheda limped to three defeats in their last four matches, though their overall start since their promotion back to the big time has been impressive and The Drogs sit in a healthy fifth spot have collected 25 points from their opening 17 fixtures. Chris Lyons and Mark Doyle – who have netted 14 times between them – are enjoying productive campaigns for Drogheda in the attacking third.
