Shelbourne vs Drogheda United – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Drogheda look vulnerable following successive hammerings in the Premier Division ahead of their clash with Shels. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Shelbourne to Win

Drogheda were turned over in each of their last three Premier Division assignments, conceding a dismal 11 goals along the way and with their confidence certain to be brittle, Shelbourne should be able to pounce for three points on Friday. Shels beat The Drogs 2-0 when the teams last met in February and fresh from a fine victory over Sligo Rovers in their last test at Tolka Park, Damien Duff’s side can prevail again.

Both Teams to Score

Kevin Doherty’s Drogheda have been on the end of some major beatings of late, though they have at least given supporters some cheer with a number of consolation efforts. Indeed, Drogheda have failed to find the net just once in their last nine matches and they should be able to land a token blow against a Shelbourne outfit that has kept just a single clean sheet in their last ten fixtures. With that considered, back both teams to score in Dublin

First Team to Score – Shelbourne

With Drogheda’s self-belief on the wane, Shels boss Damien Duff will be fully aware of the power that a fast start could have on Friday. The Drogs have shipped the first goal in each of their last four Premier Division fixtures and their sequence of slipping behind in games could be prolonged by a motivated Shelbourne side this week. Those factors suggest that a stake on Shelbourne to break the deadlock at Tolka Park could be worthwhile.

Shelbourne vs Drogheda United Match Preview and Team News

Shelbourne

Midfielders Brian McManus and Sean McSweeney are both considered doubtful for Shelbourne with a knock and muscle complaint respectively. Newly-promoted Shels earned their fourth victory of the campaign with a win over Sligo Rovers last time out, dragging themselves up to 7th place in the table in the process.

Drogheda United

Adam Foley and Darragh Markey are still inching their way back to fitness, though Friday evening’s game at Tolka Park could come too soon for both. The Drogs are just one place above the drop zone following a three-game losing streak and only bottom club UCD (32) have conceded more goals (28).
