Shamrock Rovers vs Drogheda United Prediction and Analysis
Hoops have had a wonderful season with not any downsides to their season, they have dominated the season throughout and as a result are 14 points ahead of their nearest rivals, St Patrick’s Athletic.
The Drogs did have a good start to the season, but they lost all their momentum by going on a run of 9 games without registering a win from the months of June to August.
They are currently without a win in 4 games, avoiding which could have landed them in the top half of the table. They are currently 3 points clear of the relegation zone but way ahead on goal difference.
With just a loss at home in the league, over a period of 16 months, the Rovers are always the favourites at this venue. With them conceding just twice and the visitors scoring just once in their preceding 4 games on the road, the Turks are not expected to find the back of the net.
With the Rovers scoring 2 or 3 goals in 11 of their last 12 league victories at home, I have backed a scoreline of 2 or 3 goals.
