Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Shamrock Rovers play host to Tallaght Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting Premier Division game. The Hoops have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Derry City. The Hoops have won five of their last six home games, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Experienced midfielder Ronan Finn limped off with injury in a 2-2 draw with Bohemians, with Sean Kavanagh likely to step up.
The Northern Ireland outfit, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Cork City. Since Derry City were beaten by both Sligo Rovers and St Patricks in the last two away games, we are tempted to put our money on Shamrock Rovers. In their last meeting in the national championship Shamrock Rovers defeated Derry City 2-0. Tiernan McGinty is pushing for a start for the away team after sealing the victory against Cork City off the bench.
