Reason For Derry City vs Shamrock Rovers Predictions

  • Shamrock Rovers finished 18 points ahead of Derry last season
  • Rovers have won all six matches this season
  • Shamrock have won three of their last six matches 2-0 against Derry

Shamrock Rovers enjoyed two bloodless Brandywell wins last term and it looks like more of the same Sunday, with the Hoops a perfectly good bet.

The big Derry pitch should suit the Hoops, who have barely come out of a canter in some of their games so far this season. They were out of sight by 30 minutes against Finn Harps, with Derry holding no fears.

Rovers’ big advantage is the depth of their squad and Jack Byrne, the most talented player in the league. He dictates games like these and Derry’s midfield is going to struggle to cope.

Shamrock have won all six of their matches this season and scored at least twice in each of the last five. Graham Burke and Byrne combined have scored three more goals than Derry this season.

Rovers are hard to pick a hole in and Derry’s better players will struggle to get on the ball, for all that they will be buoyed by beating St Patrick’s.

That win for St Pats was a surprise, but before that City had lost 2-1 to Watford and 2-0 against Sligo Rovers. Given the fact Derry failed to score in their last home game and three of the last six meetings finished in 2-0 wins for Shamrock that looks the best correct-score option.
