Another big week of action across the SSE Airtricity League, and with that comes another batch of OTT predictions. Since our last selections, Finn Harps have leapfrogged UCD at the foot of the table thanks to their 1-0 win away at Waterford last week, while Shamrock Rovers closed the gap to leaders Dundalk thanks to a 7-0 romp at UCD.

Not much movement in the table again this week, where Darren retains a four point lead over Cameron.

This week there are four fixtures taking place, with the weekend kicking off with the North West derby at Ballybofey where Finn Harps host rivals Derry City. The Candystripes are on an eight game unbeaten run, a run which included a double header against Harps. City romped to a 4-0 win in the league game at the Brandywell, before a 2-1 EA Sports Cup victory at the same venue three days later.

There is a tasty game at the Showgrounds on Saturday night where Sligo Rovers host Bohemians, while on Sunday second placed Shamrock Rovers travel to Turners Cross to take on a Cork City side without a win in six games.

The full fixture list for this week is as follows, all games kick off tonight at 19:45 unless otherwise stated:-

Finn Harps vs Derry City
