THE top three in the Irish league face the bottom three tonight with a treble paying a biggest just under 2-1 at William Hill.
It's not great odds but probably worth taking on. Unbeaten leaders Sligo, who have raced into an eight-point lead at the top after nine wins in their first 12 games, travel to third bottom UCD who have conceded 22 goals in their opening 12 games and haven't won in six. Take Sligo at a biggest 8-15 at William Hill.
Second-top St Patrick's face second bottom Dundalk who have lost their last four and the home side must win to at least make Sligo sweat. St Pat's are 3-10 with William Hill.
Third-place Shamrock Rovers head for basement boys Monaghan boosted by a 3-0 win over Drogheda that ended a run of four games without a win. Monaghan have lost four and drawn one of their five homes games, scoring just once. Take Rovers at a best 1-2 with Coral (4-9 at Hills).
If you need to boost the odds my fourth choice would be Derry at home to Bray. Derry have won their last two so will be in good spirits but Bray are tough to beat which is why it's not in my treble. Derry are 8-13 at William Hill.
