The best of the rest isn’t an accolade that either St Patricks Athletic or Shamrock Rovers were hoping for.

European qualification isn’t out of the question but any pretences of a title challenge are already long gone. Rovers have been beaten five times already this season, once more than they suffered in the whole of last year’s campaign and as many as in Dundalk’s last eighty-four league matches.

Pats have been hopping from big wins to disastrous losses with last week’s 5-1 hammering at the hands of Bohs the low ebb of this season. It’s easy to see where Pats’ problems lie having conceded the fifth highest number of goals in the League Of Ireland Premier Division.

As the third highest goal scorers they should be pushing Cork and Dundalk all the way but their defence hasn’t lived up to the same standard. Particularly at home where they have won just three of eight league matches despite having the second highest tally of home goals.

The lack of consistency shown by both sides makes it a difficult game to predict but the head to head stats do make for interesting reading. St Pats have come out on top in the last four head to heads and have lost just once in the last seven.

Rovers haven’t won in Inchicore in five attempts going back to 2013 and that was a one off being their only win here in thirteen.


St Patricks Athletic v Shamrock Rovers Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Shamrock Rovers go into this game as favourites at 2.5 (6/4) with bet365, Boylesports and others. St Patricks Athletic are as high as 3.1 (21/10) with Marathon bet while the draw is available at 3.3 (23/10) also with Marathon Bet.

Pats can be backed with Draw No Bet insurance at 2.2 (6/5) with Marathon Bet. Given the head to head history and the recent return of Christy Fagan to the fold that bet looks to have potential. But given Pats penchant for conceding goals at home it may be more prudent to back them to score +1.5 team goals at 3.2 (11/5) with Betfair.

Both teams to score is available at 2.05 (21/20) with 888Sport but has only come in once in Rovers games this season.  The price of 2.4 (7/5) from Marathon bet for +2.5 goals is more appealing.
