We’ve got a full compliment of SSE Airtricity League of Ireland fixtures this week, with games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Second-placed St Pats kick things off at home to Waterford on Friday at 7.45pm, looking to pull level with Shamrock Rovers at the top of the table, but they will have played two more than their title rivals by 10pm.

It’s matters at the other end of the table on the agenda in Saturday’s only game between rock-bottom Longford and 9th-placed Finn Harps at 7.30pm. It all sets us up nicely for Sunday’s feast.

With all three games kicking off at 3pm we’ve got Bohemians hosting Sligo Rovers, Dundalk heading to Derry City and Drogheda welcoming the league leaders Shamrock Rovers to United Park. So without further ado, let’s get into Alan’s picks for this weekend, including another cracking Cawley’s Call double.
