Middleton are the highest ranked outsiders according to the bookies for the FAI Cup 2nd round.

It’s hard to argue with considering they have a trip to Tallaght from Cork to face the competitions record winners.

Mind you, this season’s Shamrock Rovers have displayed some shocking inconsistency in their play. An excellent 4-0 win over Bohemians was marred by a 2-0 home defeat to Pats and a more surprising 2-0 defeat away to Wexford.

When it came to challenging the top sides in the League Of Ireland they lost to Dundalk, Cork and Derry all without registering a goal. Most damning of all were their performances in the league cup and Leinster Senior Cup.

To be fair to The Hoops those matches featured reserve sides but they are still games they should have been expected to negotiate comfortably. The 0-2 defeat to non-league Collinstown in particular raised more than a few eyebrows further away than Tallaght.

Overcoming Shelbourne in the League Cup was of course expected but they weren’t expecting to need penalties to do it. If there is a side mismatched against smaller opposition that won’t win by a barrel load it might just be Rovers.

You could look to lay it off inplay if the opportunity presents itself.
