Rovers v Dundalk - Saturday

 

Rovers are back at The Showgrounds this Saturday night!

The opening home game of the 2017 season will see the Bit o’Red against Dundalk, kick-off 7:45pm.

The visitors are three-time defending SSE Airtriicty League champions.

All three games between the teams last year were extremely close. Firstly, there was two narrow 1-0 wins for the Lilywhite, first at Oriel Park and then The Showgrounds.

In the most recent meeting Rovers took a 3-0 win from Oriel Park last October. View the goals below.

The Bit o’Red are seeking to bounce back from a disappointing lost away to Limerick which began the season at the weekend. Dundalk, meanwhile, had a 2-1 home win against Shamrock Rovers to start the season.

This game is the first in a succession of Showgrounds games the next three weekends being followed by a visit of St. Patrick’s Athletic on March 10 and Bray Wanderers on March 18.
