Premier Division preview - Round 13

You get the feeling this could be a pivotal weekend in the story that is the 2018 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division as Shamrock Rovers under-fire boss, Stephen Bradley faces into a game with struggling Limerick knowing anything other than a win could spell the end of his Tallaght tenure.
