Shamrock Rovers vs Derry City
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 29 June 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Tallaght Stadium (Dublin).

Friday’s action in 24th round of Irish Premier Division is going to be wrapped up with a clash between Shamrock Rovers and Derry City.

The hosts managed to stabilize their form a bit and tie two straight victories. Their good recent form launched them to the 4th position and they are seven points away from the spot which secures the participation in Europa League next season.

Graham Burke and the lads have been fairly productive so far while their defence should have been a bit tighter.

Derry City have the same number of points as their rivals, however they are in a very bad momentum. The visitors suffered four defeats in the last five occasions and slipped down to the 5th place.

Kenny Shiels’ side needs to improve their defending urgently if they want to remain in the race for the continental competitions.

Shamrock Rovers vs Derry City: Head-to-head

Derry City have been more successful lately, however Shamrock Rovers managed to remain undefeated in the last two encounters. Their head to head clashes are usually moderate scoring ones.

Shamrock Rovers vs Derry City: Prediction

The hosts are in a much better form and they should be able to book a valuable win in their race for the top three zone. They are playing very well at home and their rivals will have tough challenge to remain undefeated.

Derry City’s defence has been leaking too much lately and it wouldn’t be surprising if we see an efficient match this time. Since the hosts are producing enough in the front, this one should go over 2.5 margin. The price is great at the moment and the stake should be high.
