SSE Airtricity League Premier Division leaders Shamrock Rovers will be hoping this weekend is business as usual, when they host Finn Harps in their first competitive fixture since March.

Saturday's visitors have only won once this term. After such a long hiatus, form is irrelevant and they're presented with an enticing opportunity to surprise their hosts.

Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Shamrock Rovers vs Finn Harps Betting Tips

It's a clash between the leaders and a side already off-the-pace, which is perhaps harsh so early into the season, but the standings don't lie.

Finn Harps have four points from their four matches this term and only two sides (Cork City, Sligo Rovers) are worse off than them.

They were held to a goalless draw in their friendly on July 11 against First Division side Athlone Town – who are rooted bottom of Ireland's second-tier.

Shamrock have achieved a top-three finish in each of their last three seasons and were pipped to last year's title by Dundalk.

Having already beaten them in a big 3-2 win on February 28, Stephen Bradley would hate for his side to drop points on their return to competitive action.

They've scored 15 and conceded just four in their five games to date.

By contrast, Finn Harps have conceded three times as many goals (6) as they've scored (2), so they have their work cut out for them here.

Earlier this week, Shamrock announced that midfielder Greg Bolger suffered an undisclosed injury and won't feature here. Will this news impact their chances of winning? We'll see.

Shamrock Rovers vs Finn Harps Correct Score Predictions

Like previously mentioned, it's still an early stage of the campaign but Shamrock Rovers cannot afford to drop points against winnable opposition.

If they're to mount a more serious title charge this season, these are games they should be winning – especially when looking at their H2H record against Finn Harps.

For those reasons, I'm expecting they win while earning their fourth clean sheet of the campaign here.
