*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

St. Patrick’s Athletic drew 0-0 at Drogheda in their last league assignment in another frustrating result for new boss Stephen Kenny, though Pats have been a thorn in Shamrock Rovers’ side this term and they could up their game to be a nuisance again on Thursday.

The bookies are giving Athletic just a 26.3% chance of beating Shamrock Rovers, however, the visitors dropped points in three of their last four games on the road and a similar outcome looks possible here. Read more of our top predictions over on our free betting tips page.

Player to watch – Jamie Lennon

Jamie Lennon is an all-action presence in midfield for St. Patrick’s Athletic and the 26-year-old is found in the thick of things for Pats in the majority of their fixtures. The Dublin-born anchorman is a local lad and should be fired up for derby day on Thursday.

Lennon a candidate in two markets

Lennon has only scored twice this season, though one of his efforts was dispatched in St. Pats’ last home game against Dundak and the midfielder also managed to score when Athletic played Shamrock Rovers in the FAI President’s Cup in February. Lennon has also been carded seven times this term and he remains as likely to be booked as he is to score this week.
