Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Drogheda United, Shamrock Rovers will look to return to winning ways in the Ireland Premier League when they take on Dundalk at Tallaght Stadium on Matchday 19. The Hoops are level on points with league leaders St. Patricks, meaning that Friday’s clash is of big importance for the home team. Talented head coach Stephen Bradley should stick to the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Rory Gaffney up front as a lone forward.
The Lilywhites, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Drogheda and Derry City in the previous two league fixtures. Dundalk are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Dublin, which is probably the main reason why we predict that they will grab something from the match. Hoban and Kelly should keep their places up front after the duo found the net in the triumph over the Candystripes.
