Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Cork City have scored in 92% of their home games this term but the hosts have also gone six league games without a clean sheet. They play a Shelbourne side who tend to do just enough to avoid defeat, so back the visitors to strike against a defence who have conceded 1.79 goals per game this term.

Cork City vs Shelbourne Predictions

  • Cork have scored in 92% of their home games this season
  • The visitors have lost only five of their 24 games this season, drawing 11 times
  • The hosts have conceded in six straight games, shipping almost two goals per game on average

Turnaround for Cork?

Cork City head into this clash winless in five league games, which has left them second-bottom in the table and facing a relegation playoff to stay in the top flight. However, they’re fresh from a 2-0 victory in the cup last weekend. Could that be a turning point in their season?

They have an opportunity on Friday night with the two sides directly above them playing each other. However, the hosts have been shaky at Turners’ Cross so far this season and they meet a side who don’t lose all that often.

Shels need a goal

One thing that has gone in Cork’s favour this term is that they’ve got a fine record in front of goal at home. They’ve scored in 92% of their home games and they’ve found the net in each of their last nine home games. That means the Shels need to get forward.

The visitors usually tend to do enough to avoid defeat. They’ve lost just five of 24 league games this term, drawing 11 times. They’ve lost only two of their last 17 league games, so they should get something from this visit to one of the league’s weakest sides. The hosts have conceded in each of their last six Premier Division matches and they’ve conceded 43 times across their 24 games so far, so back both teams to score.
