The Situs Qiu Qiu verdict:

After disappointing action for both teams in FAI Cup they meet each other at Kingspan Century Park today to decide who will be …the last team in the Division! The domestic side is currently at the bottom , desperate to gain som efresh air, while the guests are above them but just 3 points is the difference between.

And why i will go for Shelbourne despite the awful injury crisis there and the dramatic falling down of the form at the beginning of the season? The first reason is the quality of the home side – they have just 9 points from 14 games which is a solid application for finishing last at the end of the season. They have also dropped here points by few unambitious teams so far. Stephen Finnegan is still out for the Mons with an ongoing knee problem. A kind of good news for them: Steven Feeney and Cian Mackey both await late fitness tests. It is also semeed that the team have handled the goalkeeping problem as u21 goalie Darren McQuaid may be fit to play despite sustaining a knee injury in last night’s training session.

It is time for Shelbourne to start climbing the table and every easy point lost means serious obstacles in front such a mission. Despite they must plan without Glen Lacey and Alan Murphy it is likely to see them achieving their 3 win for the season and confirming the improvement in the form.

There’s not a great deal …
