Drogheda United Double Chance

The bookmakers have priced Drogheda United as rank outsiders for their trip to play Derry City at the Brandywell on Friday, though we think there is an opportunity to back the away side in the double chance market this week. The hosts have won just one of their 11 Premier Division home assignments this term, while away day specialists Drogheda have earned points in seven of their 11 matches on the road. The Drogs held Derry when they last trekked north to take them on and they are an excellent price to avoid defeat again on Friday.

Both Teams to Score

BTTS bettors have been rewarded in five of Drogheda’s last six games in all competitions and there is evidence to suggest that the same market could be profitable once again on Friday. Both teams have notched in each of the last three encounters between Derry and Drogheda and those promising head-to-head stats indicate that the pattern should continue later this week.

Half Time Result: Draw

Derry City’s struggles at home have been well documented this season and it’s interesting to note that seven of their 11 Premier Division tussles at the Brandywell were level at half-time. When the Drogs last visited Derry in Apil, the teams went into the interval at level pegging and the same outcome looks possible this week.

Derry City vs Drogheda United: Match Preview

Derry City

Derry’s poor home form means they have struggled to drag themselves out of midtable limbo and with their fortunes at the Brandywell showing no signs of improving, the Candystripes’ chances of securing continental qualification look slim. Remarkably, City have won 67% of their total Premier Division points on the road this term, while six of their seven victories have also come away from home.

Drogheda United

Drogheda United were beaten at home by a rapidly-improving Waterford side in their last outing – a result that pushed their winless run to three matches. Tim Clancy’s men were toppled just twice in their last ten away games however, and only title contenders Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers have collected more points than the Turks on the road overall this term.
