Outright

Derry City enter this game higher up the table and in better form than their opponents, so are worthy favourites for this match. A win for Derry will see them leap frog Sligo Rovers in third position so they will be especially motivated to try and get the all important three points today.

Both teams to score

The last five meetings between the teams have yielded ten goals at an average of two per game so there is a chance that both teams can find the back of  the net here. Interestingly in four of Derry City’s last five away matches both teams have scored. In a match both ideally need to win it could be an attacking game.

Over 2.5 goals

Their have been ten goals between the two in their last five contests and twice over the last six head to head contests the 2.5 goal barrier has been exceeded only twice. Sometimes in these sorts of games they can turn into stalemates and if this is the case it might be worth siding with the under 2.5 goals market here.

Match Preview

The top two places in the Irish Premier League look to be sorted but the battle for the remaining European spot remains firmly on as there are only 8 points separating third place Sligo Rovers and Dundalk in 7th place.

With a win Derry can climb into third place and would only be five points behind second place side St Patrick’s. Derry enter this match without any wins in their last three away matches so will need to find something extra if they are to win today.

For Drogheda a win today would see them return firmly to the race for a third place finish as they would move to only four points behind Sligo, who they play next week. If Drogheda want European football next year than this is a match they simply must win. Drogheda secured a narrow 1-0 win last time out against Longford and will be hoping for more of the same here.
