Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Bohemians and Shelbourne, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Ireland Premier League table, face each other at Dalymount Park in what is expected to be a close encounter. Bohemians have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Sligo Rovers, losing to St. Patricks, while sharing the spoils with Drogheda. The Bohs are eyeing their fourth home win of the process, but Friday’s game will be anything but a walk in the park for Keith Long’s troops.
Both Stephen Mallon and Sam Packham have recovered from their respective injuries, while Kris Twardek and Grant Horton are major doubts. New signing John O’Sullivan could make his Bohemians debut against Shelbourne. The Reds, on the other hand, failed to extend their winning run to five games before the international break, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss at Shamrock Rovers. Anyhow, Bohemians and Shelbourne seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
