Finn Harps Prediction

Finn Harps find themselves bottom of the pile of the Irish Premier Division with just 7 points to their name after the first 16 matches of the season as the hosts have collected just 1 win so far this season.

That rare success for Fin Harps came last time out at their Finn Park with a resounding 3-0 win against UCD, but the hosts have endured a horrific start to this Irish top flight campaign, having lost 11 of their 16 matches to date this term.

The 3-0 win over UCD ended a dire run of six defeats on the trot on home turf as Finn Harps had suffered prior defeats to Sligo Rovers, Cork City, Shamrock Rovers, Derry City, Bohemians and St Patricks Athletic.

Needless to say their home record reads a miserable looking 1-1-6 10/14 which includes the worst defensive record at home in the division as well as 4 of Finn Harps’ 8 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Waterford Prediction

Waterford sit in a mid-table position in 6th place in the Irish top flight but they’ll fancy their chances of taking all three points when they face off against a rock-bottom Fin Harps outfit despite the hosts winning last time out 3-0.

The visitors have produced a fairly solid sequence of results in recent weeks in the Irish Premier Division as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 7 matches overall, which was a heavy 3-0 loss at home to the joint leaders of the division, Dundalk.

However, wins over Cork City and a 3-0 win away at St Patricks Athletics show they can get results, along with picking up points on the road at Sligo Rovers and Bohemians, amidst an overall away record of 2-2-4 9/13.

We’re not necessarily thinking of a Waterford win here though, as the goals market looks an attractive proposition; 5 of Waterford’s 8 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals and with the likes of midfielder Duggan (4 goals) and forward Drinan (6 goals), Waterford should also contribute to the goals count here.


Key-Facts – Finn Harps v Waterford

  • 4 of Finn Harps’ 8 home matches have resulted over 2.5 goals in the Premier Div
  • 5 of Waterford’s 8 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals

Betting Tips Verdict

Finn Harps need a win here while Waterford will be keen to get closer to the European spots – could be a few goals in this one.
