DUNDALK v ST PATRICK’S ATH (Oriel Park, 7.45)

TEAM NEWS: Weakened squad for Dundalk with Eoghan Osborne, Stephen Maher, Stephen McDonnell, Jason Byrne, Michael Hector and Shane Guthrie, pictured, (as part of the loan agreement between the clubs) all absent. Pats are missing Conor Kenna and Derek Pender.



MATCH POINT: Dundalk's run of 12 home games without defeat came to an end against Drogheda United in the local derby on Friday but they can start building up that run again with a draw here.



BETTING: Dundalk 6/4, Pats 6/4, draw 11/5



FORECAST: draw



SHAMROCK ROVERS v DERRY CITY (Tallaght Stadium, 8.00)



TEAM NEWS: Chris Turner (pictured) is the only doubt for Rovers. Derry recall James McClean from suspension.



MATCH POINT: Big ask for Derry as they make the trip south to Dublin for the second time in four days, the fourth away game in the last five matches, and that could be too much for Stephen Kenny's men.



BETTING: Rovers 4/6, Derry 7/2, draw 12/5



FORECAST: draw
