Danny North will need to get his bearings to prevent the team from the West sending Rovers’ title hopes further South.

North is Shamrock Rovers’ joint top goalscorer with two goals and after his weekend break shenanigans he should be raring to go. He will need to be as he is one of just three players to find the net so far this season.

When you can compare that to Dundalk who have eight individual scorers already you can see why the 0-2 defeat to Pats was such a blow. After keeping three clean sheets in their first three games for the first time in their history The Hoops’ hopes were high but anything less than a win on Friday night could leave them scrambling to make up a six point gap to the champions.

The fact that Rovers aren’t extremely short odds-on favourites is a mark of respect for The Tribesmen. That is a respect hard earned by Galway Utd with only an injury time goal away to Derry City preventing them from remaining unbeaten.

There are goals in this Galway side with Vinny Faherty the plunderer in chief having bagged three so far this season. They have kept it tight at the back too with only Cork City, Dundalk and Rovers conceding less.

They will have a hard job keeping the home side at bay here but it’s not beyond the realms of believability that they could get on the scoresheet themselves.

Shamrock Rovers v Galway Utd Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Rovers will look tempting to many at a best 1.65 (13/20) with Marathon Bet. Galway Utd can be backed at a high of 6.5 (11/2) with bet365 while the draw comes in at 3.85 (37/13) with Marathon Bet.

Backing Galway to score +0.5 team goals is very tempting at 1.8 (4/5) with Boylesports, Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfair. Both teams to score has a little more appeal at 2.2 (6/5) with Coral and could be taken on at a fair looking price.

With neither side looking likely to win by 3-0 or better it certainly has more appeal than +2.5 goals at 2.3 (13/10) with Marathon Bet.
