Drogheda United Preview – Can Drogheda make it five?

Friday night’s hosts, Drogheda United, will make their way into this upcoming clash against Derry City having won their last four matches on the trot with victories over Waterford, St Patrick’s, Finn Harps and Longford Town and another three points here could see them draw level with the top three.

Drogheda United had previously drawn at home with Sligo Rovers and Bohemians, making it six matches without defeat for the hosts, but although they’re unbeaten in their last four games at home, picking up wins on home soil have been tough for Drogheda.

The hosts have managed just three wins out of their last 19 matches at their interestingly named Head in the Game Park, while they’ve also failed to beat Derry City in their last four meetings, losing their last three at home on the trot against their visitors.

Derry City Preview – Can Derry extend unbeaten run?

Although they currently occupy a lowly 8th place in the Irish Premier Division, Friday’s visitors, Derry City, will bring a solid and stubborn looking four-match unbeaten run into this encounter as they look to inflict more pain on their hosts.

A 1-0 win on the road at Waterford has been complemented by points picked up in draws with Longford Town, Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick’s, and this gives Derry City a decent chancve of getting something out of this encounter as well.

Indeed, Derry City have suffered just one defeat out of their last nine matches overall in the Irish top flight and the visitors have also won three of their last four matches on their travels as well.
