A win for either side will see them leapfrog Pats and Galway into third place.

But truth be told that will still be the sum total of disappointment as the chase to catch Dundalk fails to take hold. Both managers will be feeling the pressure knowing a draw will leave them both a full six points behind the champions.

It may seem a bit early to say this but lose this game and they may as well kiss any championship hopes goodbye. A seven point gap after just nine games will be near impossible to make up especially on current form.

Cork City will head into tonight’s match with a couple of notable absentees. Kenny Browne is suspended after a red card on Friday night and big Eoghan O Connell looks likely to miss out for the second game in a row. Shamrock Rovers will also be missing Gary McCabe after his red card. Stephen McPhail could well step in for his first league start of the season.

Cork City v Shamrock Rovers Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Cork City are odds on favourites virtually across the board with Marathon Bet best price at 2.03 (30/29). Shamrock Rovers can be backed at a high of 4.2 (16/5) with Betvictor, Coral and Boylesports while the draw is 3.4 (12/5) with bet365 and Betfair.

Both teams to score may tempt at 2.1 (11/10) with Coral and Betfair but is hard to place much faith in. The same applies for +2.5 goals at a high price of 2.4 (7/5) with Marathon Bet.

The Rebels’ home form could see them over the line here but if all you can get is an odds on price it seems a little too short to invest in. It looks like a no bet might be the best option on this game.
