ABSTRACT
SHAMROCK ROVERS hold many records in Irish club football, but after being held 1-1 by arch rivals Bohemians last Friday, the Hoops are on course to record the most draws in a regular season. The high-water mark of 16 has been logged seven times and after 14 games this season, Rovers have already been involved in nine draws — it's not something to brag about. While Trevor Croly would say four of those draws were winnable, the Rovers manager can be grateful that his side are, at least, avoiding defeat. A total of 18 points from 14 games doesn't appear so unhealthy when it appears as W3 D9 L2, but Croly, in his first season as manager, would be in serious trouble if Rovers' record instead read W6 D0 L8 or W5 D3 L6. Even so, Rovers are effectively out of title contention before the season hits the halfway point, which is not what Croly, or the club hierarchy, imagined back in March after Rovers began the season with a draw in Dundalk. On the grim evidence of last Friday, where a much-changed team laboured against Bohemians, it is highly implausible that Rovers will bridge the 12-point gap to the three class acts at the summit — Sligo, who have a game in hand, St Pat's and Derry City. The prospect of a second successive summer without European football is a likely one. With three European places on offer through the Premier Division, Rovers may need to win the FAI Cup or else reach the final and pray that Sligo Rovers, St Pat's or Derry are in the opposing corner. With three games before the mid-season break, Croly needs a nine-point haul against Shelbourne (h), Cork City (a) and Limerick (h) to earn some muchneeded breathing space.
