Double Chance

Drogheda butchered Waterford 7-0 when the teams last met in May, however, the landscape for both clubs has shifted considerably since then. With just one win from their last seven games in all competitions, The Drogs are in a real slump, while Waterford are on the up thanks to a run of just two defeats in eight. The Blues have won three of their last four Premier Division assignments on the road and they look an excellent price in the double chance market this week as a result.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams have scored in three of Drogheda’s last four fixtures and in five of Waterford’s last nine league contests and we’re tipping BTTS to land again on Friday. The Drogs have swapped goals with their visitors in six of the last seven Premier Division tussles at Head in the Game Park and we expect that pattern to continue when Waterford travel north.

Waterford +1 Asian Handicap

Waterford’s improvement since the arrival of English manager Marc Bircham has been notable and they have been making particularly positive strides in defence. With organisation improved, Waterford have been a winning bet in the +1 handicap stakes in four of their last five league games and the same market appeals when The Blues take on an out of sorts Drogheda outfit.

Drogheda United vs Waterford: Match Preview

Drogheda United

Drogheda have been stuttering since manager Tim Clancy penned his new deal and their poor league form was compounded by a round one cup exit on spot-kicks to Derry City last weekend. In total, The Drogs have won only two of their last nine matches in all competitions and they have suffered three defeats in their last four games on home soil.

Waterford

Waterford came through their first-round cup test at Athlone, though they needed penalty kicks to triumph after an enthralling 4-4 draw with their hosts. In the Premier Division, the Blues have bagged ten points from the last 15 on offer and another positive result on Friday could launch them out of the bottom two.
