Punters should be alive to Saints' upset chances

Champions' celebrations could take their toll in the capital

Owen Garvan has helped to improve the St Pat’s midfield

From 7.45pm Friday

Cork City are the champions – and expect the celebrations to take its toll as they visit St Patrick's for the live game on Friday evening.

The Saints are looking a bit safer than has been the case but they still need to win this game and they are much-improved with Owen Garvan and Killian Brennan making a huge difference in midfield.

Their record against City is dire, but the visitors have been poor since Sean Maguire left and they are hardly likely to be much better on this occasion. The early prices for Pat's have gone but 21-20 is still fair.

The draw seems a little big in a crunch clash in Limerick, where Galway United desperately need maximum points but that may prove elusive. This should be close and with a draw a decent result for Limerick, odds of 13-5 appeal.

Neil McDonald’s men have improved defensively, but Galway are hard to beat at the moment.

Bray could up their game a against local foes Shamrock Rovers at the Carlisle Grounds, with 3-1 a little overpriced about Wanderers. They are finishing the season in decent form after plenty of turmoil.
