Cork City Prediction – Can Cork City bounce back?

After beating Monday night’s opponents in a recent 2-1 win away from home against Waterford at the Waterford Regional Sports Centre, Cork City will be looking to bounce back with a win here following Saturday’s loss at home to 6th placed Sligo Rovers in a 4-2 defeat.

The hosts have another chance on home turf though on Monday night at Turner’s Cross to rectify things in the immediate short-term, but overall, it’s been a pretty disappointing campaign in the Irish Premier Division for Cork City.

Cork City currently occupy 7th place on the Irish top flight ladder and find themselves 19 points adrift of 3rd placed Bohemians who occupy the last remaining European spot for next season. Therefore, there’s very little to play for apart from pride for Cork City, but they’ll head into this clash in reasonably confident mood.

The home side recorded a 2-1 win away at Waterford recently, and they’ll be keen to improve an ordinary looking home record of 2-6-6 11/19 on Monday night, as they’ve failed to win any of their last 6 matches at Turner’s Cross.

Waterford Prediction – Can Waterford gain revenge?

After their recent aforementioned 2-1 defeat at home to tonight’s opponents, Cork City, Waterford will be out to avenge that loss when they make their way to Turner’s Cross for this bottom half encounter in the Irish Premier Division.

However, this may be easier said than done for the visitors as they’ve now gone 5 league matches without a win, and indeed have picked up just 1 win out of their last 11 matches overall in the Irish top flight – that being a 2-1 win away from home at bottom club, UCD, who look doomed to relegation.

Within this disappointing 11-match sequence there are no fewer than 8 defeats that have been inflicted upon Waterford, and with just 1 away win out of their last 6 matches on the road, their chances of grabbing all three points here look slim.

In addition, an away record of 3-3-8 14/24 doesn’t look convincing and they’ve also lost recently to tonight’s opponents at home as well, and the visitors have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 14 away matches so far this season.


Key-Facts – Cork City v Waterford

  • Cork City haven’t won any of their last 6 home matches in the Premier Division
  • Cork City registered a 2-1 away win at Waterford recently
  • Waterford have lost 8 of their last 11 matches overall in the Premier Division


Betting Tips Verdict

Having registered a 2-1 win in the recent meeting against Waterford, I’m backing Cork City to get a result at Turner’s Cross on Monday night.
