    Dundalk to secure vital win over Shamrock Rovers

    Dundalk have the chance to move four points clear at the top of the Irish Premier Division on Tuesday night, as they host Shamrock Rovers at Oriel Park.

    The home side are currently on the top of the table. However, Cork have played an extra game in top-flight, so a win for Dundalk in this clash could prove to be vital.

    Stephen Kenny’s side has won their last 11 Premier Division games while scoring at least two goals in all of the victories. Last season’s runners-up have also lost just two of their last 27 Premier League games.

    A key to Dundalk’s current league position has been their league form, as they are 14 games unbeaten on home soil, recording 12 wins in the process.

    Kenny’s team have been highly effective at both ends of the pitch at home in the league of late, as they have scored at least two goals in their last ten games while keeping clean sheets in five of their last seven matches.

    Shamrock Rovers are currently fourth place in the Premier League, just a point behind Waterford United, who occupy the last European spot in the Irish top-flight.

    Rovers are currently on a good run of form, unbeaten in six league games having recorded five victories in the process. A crucial factor in that recent stellar run of form is that the visitors have kept clean sheets in their last six outings.

    Those recent clean sheets have contributed to Rovers last five league games producing under 2.5 goals.

    Shamrock are unbeaten in five away games in the league, having drawn three games and won two. The visitor’s recent league games on their travels have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last eight away games.

    Forebet predicts that Dundalk will continue their recent good run of form to record a victory in a low scoring encounter.
