United v Shelbourne – Preview.

Galway United v Shelbourne

Saturday 7.45pm, Tolka Park.

United travel to Tolka Park on Saturday night to conclude a disappointing season against a promotion-chasing Shels side. Shels will be confident of securing a play-off place against a United side bereft of confidence- with one league win from the last six, despite being on a shaky run of form in their last few games. The game should, however, give United further chance to blood youngsters coming through from an increasingly successful underage set-up.

Form:

United 1 Wexford Youths 1  Cabinteely 1 Shels 1
Finn Harps 2 United 0 Shels 2 Athlone 2
United 0 Bohemians 2* Longford Town 2 Shels 0*
United 1 Longford Town 4 Wexford Youths 1 Shels 2
North End 0 United 4* Shels 2 Bluebell United 0*
Drogheda 2 United 2 Shels 4 Athlone Town 0*

*cup game

Previous Results: United 1 Shels 2, Shels 2 United 0.

Top Scorers:

United- Eoin McCormack/Conor Barry… 10 goals.

Shels- David O’Sullivan… 15 goals.

Predicted Line-ups:

Prediction: A win for Shels guarantees their place in the play-offs, and against a United side, who’s season has already stuttered to a disappointing end, I can’t see them slipping up.

Shels 3 United 0.
