Shamrock Rovers vs Drogheda United
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 23rd June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Tallaght Stadium.
Can Drogheda United recover from a painful 0-6 defeat they suffered last Friday to the reigning champions at their Hunky Dorys Park?
Pete Mahon’s men will have a very tough task to do so in the 19th round of the competition when they travel to Tallaght Stadium to take on in-form Shamrock Rovers.
The hosts have been quit dominant at Tallaght Stadium so far in the season.
The Hoops claimed four consecutive wins in front of their fans before a surprising slip up at the start of the month when they only drew 1-1 with the rock-bottomed St. Patrick’s Athl.
The team did, however, bounce back after the international break by clinching points from Finn Park last weekend.
The loss to Dundalk extended Drogheda’s struggles with the efficiency in the final third.
The Drogs have now failed to find the back of the net in six consecutive matches and they will face hard time ending this dreadful run against Shamrock who are very tough to break down in front of their fans.
Shamrock Rovers vs Drogheda United: Head to head
The Hoops have entirely dominated this match-up over history with 39 wins in 62 matches.
However, Drogheda came out victorious from their first meeting in this season thanks to a 93rd minute winner from Stephen Dunne.
Shamrock Rovers vs Drogheda United: Prediction
Shamrock are massive favourites to claim points and stay in touch with Bray Wanderers in the battle for the third position.
We simply have to take the 6/5 odds offered by the bookie son the home win to nil considering the Drogs’ catastrophic attacking form.
