  • Venue: Weavers Park (Drogheda)

Drogheda have a terrible season. They are the last in the Premier Division with 16 points from 22 matches. There are only 14 more rounds in the Irish National League left to be played, and it seems pretty obvious that Drogheda will not play in the competition next season. Kevin Doherty's team lost six of the last seven matches. In the previous game, they lost 5-1 on the road against Derry City. The home side finished the match with 70% ball possession and eight shots on the goal more than Drogheda, so it is no wonder Doherty's team suffered another defeat. 

Shelbourne is on the opposite side of the spectrum. They are first on the table with two points more than the next team on the table, Derry City. Shelbourne is on a fantastic run of six wins in the last seven matches. In the previous game, they won 2-0 at home against Galway. Shelbourne wasn't on their best level in that match, but they still secured another great win. 

Drogheda vs Shelbourne pick: Shelbourne to win

Drogheda and Shelbourne had two h2h matches this season and both games finished with splitting points. However, Shelbourne welcomes Thursday's game in fantastic form, so we should expect them to win against a struggling opponent.
