Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Brandywell Stadium will host Friday’s football game between Derry City and Shamrock Rovers. The Candystripes aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to St. Patricks, but they face an uphill task in the clash against the league leaders. Joe Thomson returns to contention, while Marc Walsh remains on the sidelines with a long-term injury. Jamie McGonigle is rated doubtful for the match.
The Rovers, on the other hand, retained top position in the standings thanks to a 3-1 win over Dundalk. The league leaders are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Derry, and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Matchday 21. It has to be noted that Shamrock Rovers were not in action at the weekend due to their participation in the Champions League qualifiers. A man to watch in the away team will be Rory Gaffney, who has netted six goals so far this season.
