Derry City Double Chance

Derry City have transformed into one of the Premier Division’s most robust teams since Ruaidhrí Higgins was appointed manager back in April. The Candystripes have lost just once in 11 assignments since their former midfielder took the reins and their form on the road has been a particular highlight. City have pocketed 16 points from the last 18 on offer away from home and they are available at excellent odds to avoid defeat at Oriel Park this week.

Both Teams to Score

Derry City have been trading blows with their opponents for an extended period and both teams have scored in 11 of their last 13 league matches since mid-April. In addition, each of the last two encounters between Dundalk and Derry produced goals at either end and the BTTS market could prove profitable again on Friday.

Half Time Result: Draw

Derry City like to keep things tight on the road and the Candystripes tend to sit deep before feeling their way into fixtures away from the Brandywell. As a result, seven of their nine away contests this term were level heading into the interval and another half-time draw looks possible when City head south to take on Dundalk later this week.

Dundalk vs Derry City: Match Preview

Dundalk

With disjointed performances and managerial upheaval hindering their progress, Dundalk have been performing well below expectations this season and their campaign was dealt another blow this week when inspirational skipper Chris Shields announced his intention to move north of the border to Linfield after Friday’s fixture. Dundalk sit just four places from the foot of the table ahead of this week’s clash despite winning the title as recently as 2019.

Derry City

Derry City are enjoying a resurgence under Ruaidhrí Higgins and their excellent run of just one defeat in 11 games includes a haul of five wins from their last six away tests. Attacking midfielder Will Patching’s performances have been a real highlight, though the 22-year-old is on loan from Dundalk and cannot feature against his parent club this week.
