There’s just the one match in Monday night’s edition of the Irish Premier League but one that has importance to Derry City when they take on Waterford as the betting tips continue at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Derry City Prediction – Can Derry close gap on top three?

After being handed an unexpected 1-0 defeat away at lowly Finn Harps on the weekend, Derry City will be keen to set the record straight here.

That surprise loss at Finn Harps ended an encouraging 7-match sequence without defeat in the Irish top flight.

They now return to home turf on Monday night though where they’ve put together a 5-match run without a loss.

This run of positive results include wins against Finn Harps 4-0 and Sligo Rovers 3-0, so the visit of Waterford will represent a good opportunity to grab 3 points here.

Derry City also have the added incentive of knowing a win tonight would see them move within just 3 points of 3rd placed Bohemians.

A home record of 6-3-3 20/10 has certainly been boosted by Derry’s recent 5-match unbeaten run, as well as an edge over their opponents.

Derry recorded a 3-2 win over Waterford in their last encounter at home, and with forwards Ogedi-Uzokwe (8 goals) and Parkhouse (7 goals) in tandem up front, they’ll be hard to stop.

Waterford Prediction – Can Waterford record back-to-back wins?

Onto Waterford, and the visitors head into this clash on the back of a valuable 2-1 win away at bottom club, UCD, last time out.

This welcome victory ended a dismal run of 5 matches without a win in the Irish Premier Division and in turn moved them further away from the relegation play-off spot.

The visitors had previously lost 4 of these previous 5 matches with defeats suffered against Bohemians, Dundalk, St Patrick’s and Finn Harps.

Indeed, Waterford had gained just 1 point from the possible 15 on offer during this slump in results, which was thanks to a 0-0 draw at Sligo Rovers.

An away record of 3-3-6 13/20 includes a mixed return in recent weeks on the road as they’ve secured wins at St Patrick’s and UCD.

However, losses at Finn Harps and Dundalk have offset their recent victories and they now face a tough assignment against Derry City on Monday night.

With just 4 away wins from their last 15 matches on their travels in the top flight, this looks a tricky trip indeed.


Key-Facts – Elfsborg v Kalmar

  • Derry City are unbeaten in their last 5 matches at home in the Premier Division
  • Waterford have won just 4 of their last 15 away matches in the Irish top flight
  • Derry City won the last encounter at home against Waterford 3-2


Betting Tips Verdict

Derry City should have the weapons up front to grab all three points in this clash.
