Irish League Fixtures

Round 7's fixtures are once again disrupted by the weather with snow over the weekend. Cork are at home to Bohs and Shamrock Rovers are awat to Limerick. 
  • Monday 19th      - Bray Wanderers v Waterford - Postponed
  • Monday 19th     - Cork City v Bohemians
  • Monday 19th    - St Pats v Sligo Rovers - Postponed
  • Monday 19th     - Limerick v Shamrock Rovers 

Cork City v Bohemians

Cork had to settle for a share of the spoils away to Limerick on Friday night in what was probably a fair result as both teams had chances to nick it late on. Cork will be frustrated at not being able to break down a defence that had conceded 13 goals in 3 games prior to that. They face a Bohs side who drew 2-2 at home to Sligo Rovers on Friday. They lead the game twice but surrendered the lead quickly on both occasions. Cork can get at a struggling Bohs side here and will want to get on the front foot quickly in front of the home crowd. 

Betting Prediction: Cork Win @ 2/5 / Cork -1 Asian Hndicap @ 7/10 / Cork City Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 6/5 

Limerick v Shamrock Rovers

Limerick responded to their heavy defeat in Derry in impressive fashion as they drew with champions Cork at home. They had chances to win the game and the performances of Cian Coleman & Billy Dennehy were particulalrly notable. Rovers scored late on at home to Pats in a game they dominated and will surely create chances in this evening's game. If Limerick can keep their level of performance up, they stand a good chance of getting at least a point again here. 

Betting Prediction: Both Teams To Score @ Evs / Correct Score 1-1 @ 7/1
