St Patricks team news and form: Kenny’s troops could and must do better

7th place in the Irish Premier Division is not what the fans were hoping for at the start of the season. Coach Kenny is aware that the expectations are high and his team must climb the ladder sooner rather than later. Sadly, he won’t be able to count on Tom Grivosti for this match as the defender is currently injured.

Predicted lineup: Rogers (GK), Redmond, Keeley, Turner, Breslin, Kavanagh, Lennon, Mulraney, Forrester, Leavey & Melia

Shelbourne team news and form: Quality stuff by Jarvis and his colleagues

Will Jarvis’ presence is problematic for our St Patricks vs Shelbourne predictions. He is the leading finisher for the visitors, with five goals since the start of the campaign. He is definitely going to be among the starters for his manager, but we believe Redmond and his teammates have the required arsenal to deal with him.

Predicted lineup: Kearns (GK), Gannon, Barrett, Molloy, Ledwidge, Coyle, Lunney, Smith, Caffrey, Jarvis & Martin

Player to watch: Joe Redmond

St Patricks’ team captain is the player to watch in our key St Patricks vs Shelbourne prediction, as he’s by far one of coach Kenny’s key performers in recent years. At the age of 24, the center-back is now wearing the armband and is doing his best to defend the team’s honor.

Redmond a rock at the center of defense

Joe Redmond hasn’t scored any goals this season, but he did supply a teammate with an assist. We are sure that his sturdy defensive work will help St Patricks get a much-needed win over in-form Shelbourne.
