SSE Airtricity League Gameweek Two Roundup

It’s the penultimate week of the League of Ireland the league title is wrapped up and barring some miraculous scorelines, U.C.D. appear destined to return straight back to the First Division. The chase for Europe is still alive at the moment with Bohemians in the driving seat and sitting five points clear of Derry City but the Candystripes do have a game in hand to be played on Tuesday night.

The full fixture list for this weekend is as follows, all games are tonight 19:45 unless otherwise stated:-

Cork City v Dundalk

St. Patrick’s Athletic v Bohemians

U.C.D. v Shamrock Rovers

Finn Harps v Waterford (tonight at 20:00)

Sligo Rovers v Derry City (tomorrow night at 19:45)

More importantly of course it’s the penultimate week of our Writer’s League of Ireland Prediction League. Darren currently leads the way on 92 points and he is followed by Bryan and Cameron on 86 and 85 points respectively with Rodney and Liam still being in with a chance but needing big weeks if they are to have a chance of winning. Unfortunately for Keith and Adrian they find themselves bringing up the rear.

Here is the full leaderboard:-

1: Darren 92
2: Bryan 86
3: Cameron 85
4: Rodney/Liam 80
6: Keith 70
7: Adrian 69
