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

4th placed Derry City will be eager to bounce back with a win after their recent 2-1 defeat away from home at Premier Division league leaders, Shamrock Rovers, when they play host to St Patricks at their Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Derry City had previously put together a seven-match unbeaten run in the Irish top flight which included five wins while goals could also feature in Friday night’s tussle as six of Derry’s last eight games overall have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Derry have lost just one of their last 10 home games five of these last 10 games have also seen 3 goals or more being scored; two of the previous three meetings at home against St Patricks have also resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

St Patricks Preview – Can St Patricks win back-to-back on the road?

A 1-0 win away from home at Drogheda United handed St Patricks a valuable three points last time out in the Premier Division and also prevented a third league defeat for the visitors following recent back-to-back defeats against Sligo Rovers and Shamrock Rovers.

St Patricks currently occupy 2nd place in the Premier Division standings and look likely to finish behind league leaders, Shamrock Rovers, as they find themselves nine points adrift of the top club but they’ll also be keen to keep 3rd placed Sligo Rovers at arms length.

However, results away from home haven’t exactly been convincing as St Patricks have managed to win just two of their last seven away games, but goals look likely as four of St Patricks last seven away games have seen 3 goals or more.
