Shamrock Rovers visit Derry City on Tuesday night and Stephen Bradley will be demanding an improved performance after the Hoops had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Sligo.
It was another late goal that got Rovers out of jail in their most recent league game, with an 88th minute own goal cancelling out Sligo’s opener just six minutes earlier.
Still fifth in the Airtricity League table and unbeaten in three matches, Rovers have been slow out of the blocks in the early stages of the 2021 League of Ireland season.
However, the defending champions have a game in hand on most of their title rivals and a win here will cement their status as favourites to retain their crown.
Derry are rooted to the foot of the Airtricity League table and Rovers fans will be expecting a big performance from their side on Tuesday evening.
The Hoops are unbeaten in their previous eight games against Derry, winning seven of those while keeping a clean sheet in six of those triumphs.
With that in mind, football betting punters should consider backing Rovers to clinch a win to nil at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.
Write the Hoops off at your peril. It has been a slow start to the season for Rovers but a top performance and an impressive result here could be the catalyst for a successful 2021.
