Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

This is a curious fixture because we have two teams that typically do not have high scoring games. Right now, however, their performances have been quite the opposite and this makes us believe that we can expect goals. Drogheda are one of the weakest teams in the league but they have recently won a few games where they scored a bunch of goals. Derry City have also improved significantly in attack.

Match Result Prediction: Derry City to Win

Drogheda have been looking good at home lately but Derry City cannot afford to drop more points on the road. With just four games left, they have to win every single one if they want to contest that title until the end. Drogheda are safe from relegation and even if they win all games, they will not reach Top 3. They have nothing to play for and Derry should use this opportunity.

Derry City have always had the best defense in the league and this season has not been different. On the other end, Drogheda have one of the weakest ones.

Drogheda United Preview

At this stage in the season, Drogheda have nothing to fight for and nothing more to achieve. They are not getting relegated once again and will be back for another year.
