The hosts, on the other hand, will be hoping to end a 13-match losing streak against the Lilywhites by winning this time around. Shelbourne were beaten 1-0 by a 10-man Bohemian side on Friday, their first loss in six games.

Since their 4-1 loss to Bohemian in April, Shelbourne have won three straight games at home and scored five goals while surrendering just one since returning to the pitch.
