St. Patrick’s Athletic vs Shamrock Rovers
Republic of Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 12 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Richmond Park (Dublin).
One of the most exciting clashes of the Irish Premier Division 34th round is going to be contested between St. Patrick’ Athletic and Shamrock Rovers.
Home side is sitting in the middle of the table and they hoped to be more competitive in the battles for one of the continental spots. A period of poor form prevented them of challenging the top three and they cannot improve their position further.
St. Patrick’s Athletic have been in variable form lately as they booked two wins in the last five rounds. Lim Buckley’s side has been involved in a lot of high scoring matches, but their defending should have been much tighter.
The hosts have been putting decent performances at home ground, but they also suffered five defeats in 16 occasions.
Shamrock Rovers managed to improve their game significantly in the second part of the season and they are fighting for the third spot. The visitors are in excellent form as they missed the chance to win only once in the last five matches in the Premier Division.
Daniel Carr and the lads have been pretty productive, while their defence is one of the tightest in the league. They are in a superb streak of four straight victories when playing away from home.
