Two of Monday’s night’s League of Ireland Premier Division fixtures fell victim to the poor weather conditions and St. Pat’s v Derry and Finn Harps v Shelbourne will now be played on the 16th March.

This weekend there is a full set of fixtures in the top flight with four taking place tonight (Friday 28th February 2020) and a further game tomorrow night.

By far the pick of the games sees a clash between the two title favourites as Dundalk travel to Dublin to take on Shamrock Rovers at the Tallaght Stadium. Both sides have enjoyed perfect starts to their seasons and sit joint top of the table with three wins from three, Rovers currently edge the way due to a better goal difference.

With a draw and a defeat in their opening two games, Declan Devine’s Derry side will be hoping to get their season up and running tonight when they enjoy home advantage against Bohemians and Sligo Rovers and Cork will also be hoping to make the most of home comforts as they both seek their first points of the season.

Here is the full fixture list for this weekend, all games kick off tonight at 19:45 unless otherwise stated:-

Cork City v Finn Harps

Derry City v Bohemians

Shelbourne v St. Patrick’s Athletic

Shamrock Rovers v Dundalk

Sligo Rovers v Waterford (Saturday 29th February 2020 at 19:45)
