Tip Reasoning

  • Shamrock Rovers have kept a joint league-high eight clean sheets.
  • Drogheda failed to score in each of the last three home league H2H meetings.
  • Shamrock Rovers had a half-time lead in five of their eight away league games.
  • Drogheda led only once by half-time in eight home league games.

Luck is out of the equation for Shamrock

Currently cruising at the top of the league with only two defeats from 17 games to date (W12, D3), Shamrock Rovers look to continue their quest for a 20th Irish championship as they visit Drogheda, a side flirting with the relegation places at this stage of the season.

Drogheda ended a four-game losing streak last time out, but a 3-1 victory over second bottom side Finn Harps hardly inspires massive confidence that they can now turn up and do a job against the likely title candidates.

In fact, Drogheda are winless in all six H2H meetings since the beginning of 2019 (D1, L5) with the most recent clash seeing them trail 2-0 at the interval. Shamrock will be eyeing a similarly quick start as they so often do, with each of their four away league wins this term coming at both HT/FT.

Stick with the favourites

Shamrock manager Stephen Bradley boasts an unsurprisingly dominant record in his personal clashes with Drogheda (W7, D1, L2) while four of the last six victories in that sequence also saw his side maintain a clean sheet.

Considering the evidence, the challenge seems to be in finding an angle in which we can back the away win while getting a bit of value. As such, we are going for a half-time/full-time Shamrock victory, though the ‘win to nil’ market also looked tempting.

That possibility is covered in our correct score prediction though, as we predict this one could end up being a workmanlike 2-0 away win.
