Bray Wanderers look well capable of troubling favourites Shamrock Rovers

Drogheda look lively outsiders

Derry's Ronan Curtis plays his final game before a move to Portsmouth
1 of 1

7.45pm Friday & Saturday

Bray Wanderers can cause a surprise in Tallaght on Saturday evening and they warrant a wager at double-figure odds to beat Shamrock Rovers for the second time this season.

Bray shocked the Hoops 1-0 at the Carlisle Grounds and they looked a team who had a great deal more to offer when beating St Patrick's 3-1 last weekend. That was a game in which they had plenty of opportunities to add to their goal tally.

As the odds suggest, Rovers will probably win but they come into this game on a major downer after losing 5-2 to Dundalk and Bray are capable of creating chances. The home crowd will be immediately restless if the hosts fall behind.

Bohemians are not out of the relegation scrap and host a Derry City outfit conceding far too many goals. Even so, the Candystripes probably should not be as big as they are and appeal in the draw no bet market.

Derry dominated midfield in the second half at Cork on Monday. They have lots of quality as Ronan Curtis plays his final game before going to Portsmouth, but clearly need to cut out the concession of easy goals.

Dundalk are long odds-on at home to Limerick, which looks a little short, although they have hammered them in both meetings this season.

Just because there are well-publicised financial problems at Limerick does not mean the players, who were excellent against Bohemians last weekend, will throw in the towel.

It is hard to know what to expect from St Patrick's Athletic's visit to Waterford. Pat's have lost Christy Fagan for the rest of the season, while Blues loanee Lawrence Vigouroux has returned to Swindon Town. The Saints put in a shocker of a performance in Bray last weekend, with Thomas Byrne sent off.

Cork City visit Sligo Rovers on Saturday evening and are no certainties against a team who know how to defend. The 0-0 draw has been nibbled at and the match prices seem about right.

Tim Clancy has done a superb job at Drogheda, who rate lively outsiders at table-toppers UCD in Division One. Drogs, with skipper Jake Hyland having a fine campaign, are really well organised and are not to be underestimated.
