6.Cork City291161238:4139
10.UC Dublin29751740:6426
11th placed team play relegation play off .  12th placed (last placed) relegate directly!

Shelbourne must win today,if they win they will have 23 points and they will be on 11th place (relegation play off!!!) , Bray who is currently on 11th place today will play vs strong Shamrock on away ground so probably they will lose.

Shelbourne today without: Crowley(mf 9/0), Leech(att 17/1), Shortall(df 20/1), Memery(df 15/0), Cronin(mf 12/0).

Drogheda play for nothing they are in middle of table with 33 points , they cant relegate and cant go up so this match is not so important for them. On 06/10 they have very important match in CUP , semi final match vs Dundalk!!! probably coach today will rest some players.

Drogheda have problems in defence because 3 central defenders Prendergast(df 19/0), Alan Byrne(df 22/1), Grimes(df 26/0) are OUT!! O'Neill(att 17/4) and Cassidy(mf 26/0) are also unavailable!!

now take a look at their connections.
starting from 2006/07 they have around 20 FREE transfers between them!!

Shelbourne in squad have 6 ex Drogheda's players (Gannon , Crowley , Gartland ,Ryan and Connor).
Drogheda have 2 ex Shelbourne's players (that are Cassidy and Foley)

distance between them is just 43km (Dublin > Drogheda)

in all their matches there are suspecious moments like red cards,penalty kicks,mistakes in defence,late goals..

this season's first match was very suspecious
Drogheda 1-3 Shelbourne (ht 1-0) ... 1/2
here are highlights from that match -

take a look at goals from this their mutual match funny penalty kick and two other funny goals ...

Now Shelbourne desperate need points to stay in league, they will have home field advantage and I hope they will win this match
