Cork City is dominating the Irish football this year. After only 15 games it is evident that they are going to be the champions of Irish Premier League. Tonight's meeting with Shamrock Rovers will be the main event of this round in Ireland, but it will be far away from Derby because the home team is smashing anything that comes into their way. The Rovers will try to avoid defeat in this match, but it will be one hell of a task for them.
