Greetings from Head in the Game Park where sixth placed Drogheda United welcome league leaders Shamrock Rovers. A win for the Drogs could move them up to fourth depending on how results go elsewhere this afternoon. The Hoops are level on points with St. Pats after their win over Waterford in Inchicore on Friday but Rovers have two games in hand - one of which is today's game.
