Derry City Preview – Can Derry move away from relegation spots?

Although Derry City currently sit in a lowly 8th place on the Irish Premier Division table and have recorded just one win from their last five matches overall, the hosts know that they have a golden opportunity to return to winning ways here and put daylight between themselves and fellow strugglers, Cork City this Friday.

Derry registered a 2-0 win away from home at St Patrick’s Athletic but have also fallen foul of Waterford, Sligo Rovers and Shamrock Rovers in recent times but they hold home advantage for this upcoming clash against Cork City.

Derry have lost their last two home matches on the trot but they hold a good record at home against Cork City, having won their last two meetings on the trot against Cork, 4-0 and 2-0 respectively.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Cork City Preview – Can Cork City win back-to-back?

A 3-0 home win over Sligo Rovers last time out in the Irish Premier Division will give Friday’s visitors, Cork City, plenty of encouragement ahead of this important clash with Derry City as they seek to record back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

However, Cork have managed to collect just two wins to date in this new Premier Division campaign, both of which were recorded on home turf at their Turner’s Cross ground with an earlier 1-0 win against bottom club, Finn Harps, while results away from home have been poor.

The bigger picture shows that Cork City are without an away win from their last eight matches of which they’ve lost seven of these along with failing to score in all eight of these matches on the road, so this trip to Derry City doesn’t bode well for Cork City.
