Rovers rocked after cup exits

Leaders Shamrock Rovers have won their last five league games, but we’re keen to swerve Stephen Bradley’s side at odds-on when they face in form Finn Harps this Friday.

Indeed, it’s been a difficult fortnight or so for Rovers, who won’t exactly be in good spirits following their exits from the UEFA Europa Conference League and FAI Cup.

Rovers were outclassed 5-2 on aggregate by Estonian outfit Flora Tallinn before a 2-1 cup defeat at Bohemians, and their confidence could well have been knocked ahead of their return to league action.

A trip to face a Finn Harps side with their tails up looks far from ideal and the 4/6 about an away win here looks best avoided. Harps have won three on the spin and while two of those victories came against woefully out of form Sligo and basement dwellers Longford, Ollie Horgan’s charges were very impressive when beating second placed St Pat’s 3-1 here last time out.

It may be best to focus on the goal markets with Harps set to give Shamrock a test and under 2.5 is the pick. Three of the last four meetings have produced less than three goals, while under 2.5 has also landed in seven of Harps’ 11 home games and in seven of Shamrock’s 11 away trips.

The teams drew 1-1 when they last squared off at Tallaght Stadium in June and a repeat score-line could also be on the cards this Friday.
