Draw No Bet – Drogheda

Drogheda are nursing some bruises following a three-match winless run, though the point they secured last time out at defending champions Shamrock Rovers will have repaired some of their damaged confidence. Finn Harps meanwhile have won only once in their last nine attempts and their draw at home to bottom club Longford last week would have been a real body blow to their self-belief. We're advising you to stick with the hosts at Game Park on Friday as a result.

Under 2.5 Goals

Encounters between Drogheda and Finn Harps have regularly been low-scoring affairs in recent seasons. Each of the last seven competitive fixtures between the clubs have produced under 2.5 goals and a similar outcome is anticipated when they renew acquaintances this week. Drogheda and Finn Harps are averaging just 1.3 and 1.0 goals per 90 minutes home and away respectively this term, so don’t expect fireworks in Louth.

Chris Lyons to Score Anytime

Chris Lyons has been in blistering form for Drogheda this season and the striker’s eight goals make up over a quarter of his team’s overall haul for the campaign so far. The 28-year-old has notched three times in his last four appearances alone and his effort against Shamrock Rovers last week earned The Drogs an unlikely share of the spoils at Tallaght Stadium.

Drogheda United vs Finn Harps: Match Preview

Drogheda United

Newly promoted Drogheda had limped to three defeats in four matches before their heroic 1-1 draw at Shamrock Rovers and manager Tim Clancy can reflect on a positive start to the campaign overall with 26 points banked after 18 fixtures. The Drogs managed to avoid defeat in six of their first nine home games and their tough to crack exterior at Game Park should stand them in good stead for the rest of the 2021 Premier Division season.

Finn Harps

Finn Harps are in a real rut at the moment and manager Ollie Horgan is struggling to get the best out of his beleaguered troops. The Harps’ stalemate at home to the division’s worst outfit Longford last week felt like a fresh nadir and their run of just two victories in their last 14 assignments in total puts them near the foot of the Premier Division’s form table.
