St Patrick’s Athletic v Shamrock Rovers Preview
St Patrick’s Athletic’s Form
St Patrick’s Athletic, following the departure of Tim Clancy and since Jon Daly has taken over their season, have turned around substantially.
Pats have won four of their last five games in the league as they mount a late title bid. It looked like an impossible task for them earlier in the season but they’ve clawed the gap back to just three points.
Along with their exploits in the Premier Division, the club have shone brightest this season during their FAI Cup run dispatching Longford Town, Derry City, Finn Harps and Cork City to reach the final for the first time since their 2021 success (which was ironically against Bohemians who they’ll play in this year’s final).
While it is unlikely that they surpass Shamrock Rovers in the table at this late stage, victory in this fixture would give them an outside opportunity to overcome the odds that are seemingly stacked against them.
Shamrock Rovers’s Form
Shamrock Rovers need four points from their remaining three games to secure their fourth successive League of Ireland Premier Division title. Despite the less-than-impressive nature this season compared to previous title victories, they’re still Ireland’s leading club and it’s up to the other clubs to reach the standards they’ve set in the coming seasons.
Interestingly, Stephen Bradley has been in charge of the club since 2016 and speculation is rife that he could be departing for the currently vacant Lincoln City job following the departure of another Dubliner Mark Kennedy from the club in recent days.
However, the task for Shamrock Rovers and Bradley now is to finish the season on a high with their fourth title in four years. Expect them to be well up for this nationally televised game.
A massive night live on RTÉ2 this Friday 👊

St Patrick’s Athletic v Shamrock Rovers Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: St Patrick’s Athletic 1-2 Shamrock Rovers
While St Patrick’s Athletic have a Cup Final to look forward to in the coming weeks, they’re still mathematically in the title race. But anything short of a victory here would mean their title dreams will be all but over.
Shamrock Rovers, despite being less than impressive this season (compared with their previous title wins), know a win here would put them a point away from their fourth league title in a row.
Interestingly, while the historic stats suggest that this is often a low-scoring affair, there have been eleven goals across their three games this season. Shamrock Rovers should win this one but I can see there being a few goals.
