St Patrick’s Preview – Can St Patrick’s bounce back?

Following two away matches on the trot in the Irish Premier Division which have resulted in a 1-1 draw at Waterford and a 3-2 loss at Bohemians, St Patrick’s will no doubt be eager to re-group on home turf ahead of this upcoming clash with Derry City.

As a result of picking up just one point from the last possible six on offer, St Patrick’s have now dropped down to 3rd place on the table and three points behind the top two clubs, Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers, but having earlier won three games on the trot, St Patrick’s will be confident they can bounce back here.

St Patrick’s have won their last two home games on the trot as well but defeats to Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk in recent times makes the goals market more appealing, especially as six of St Patrick’s last 10 home games have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Derry City Preview – Can Derry continue revival?

After a poor start to the new Irish top flight season which saw Derry City fail to win their opening six matches of the new campaign, Derry City have since lost just two of their subsequent 15 matches overall which includes six wins.

Derry now occupy a much more respectable looking 6th place on the Irish Premier Division ladder but they’re still 10 points adrift of their 3rd placed hosts, St Patrick’s prior to this Friday night clash at Richmond Park, but results on the road have been encouraging.

The visitors have lost just one of their last seven matches on the road, winning five of these games, while four of Derry’s last seven away games have also seen over 2.5 goals too.
