Shamrock Rovers are sitting six points clear at the summit of the League of Ireland Premier Division, but they do have a game in hand over nearest competitors Dundalk.

Rory Gaffney has been in terrific form this season and with the return of Graham Burke to full fitness, goals should not be a problem.
