The Irish Premier Division season is in full swing and our next preview features a clash between Waterford and Finn Harps as the betting tips continue at the Waterford Regional Sports Centre.

Waterford Prediction – Can Waterford break winless run?

4 matches without a win isn’t the best of preparations for Friday night’s hosts, Waterford, as they look to return to winning ways here.

Of these 4 matches, 3 have been defeats to Bohemians, Dundalk and St Patrick’s respectively, along with a 0-0 draw at Sligo Rovers.

The hosts have managed to record just 1 win out of their last 7 matches overall in the Irish Premier Division, so confidence is likely to be shaky.

That victory was achieved against UCD in a 1-0 win on home turf at their Waterford Regional Sports Centre, but the recent defeats have put them back.

Waterford possess an overall home record that stands at 4-3-4 17/14 but the hosts have recorded just 1 win out of their last 6 matches.

Within these 11 matches, Waterford have kept 5 clean sheets so they’ll be confident they can keep a shut-out against Finn Harps here.

The hosts also registered a convincing 4-0 win last time out on home turf against Friday night’s opponents, Finn Harps.

Finn Harps Prediction – Can Finn Harps lift off bottom?

Although their opponents on Friday night haven’t been in the best of form, Finn Harps still face a tough trip to Waterford in this clash.

Their task isn’t made any easier by the fact that they’ve managed just 1 win out of their last 8 matches overall, which was a 2-0 home win over Sligo Rovers.

Within this poor 8-match sequence, Finn Harps have suffered 6 defeats during this miserable period, and they could be heading for another loss on Friday night.

The story doesn’t get much better when switching to results away from home either as the visitors have lost their last 4 matches on the trot.

An overall poor away record of 0-3-9 5/27 includes recent defeats at Derry City, Bohemians, St Patrick’s and also bottom club, UCD.

Finn Harps also possess the worst defensive record away from home in the Irish Premier Division as well as keeping just 1 clean sheet on the road to date.

The bigger picture also shows us that Finn Harps have failed to win any of their last 15 away matches in the Irish top flight.
