In their opening eight Premier Division matchups this year, they have recorded seven wins and one draw. Collecting 22 points out of a possible 24 and already holding a four-point buffer at the top of the table, it should also be noted that Shamrock hold the best-attacking record in the division.

In their opening eight contests this year, they have recorded three wins, one draw and four defeats, scoring six and conceding eight in return. Collecting 10 points out of a possible 24, they open Friday’s fixtures sat in sixth and three points clear of the relegation play-off spot. As for their recent run of results, Shelbourne have failed to win any of their last five Premier Division appearances, losing three of those outings. Hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Sligo in their last contest on the road, we’re backing over 2.5 goals in Friday’s contest.
