Dundalk to Win

After a four-match winless, which included two unsuccessful fixtures in Europe, Dundalk will be determined to get their campaign on track, and we’re tipping the Lilywhites to post a victory this week. Drogheda are in the midst of a five-game losing streak and they have won only one of their last ten assignments overall. Dundalk have already beaten The Drogs twice this term and they can complete a hattrick of wins on Friday.

Under 2.5 Goals

While we expect the hosts to pocket the points on Friday, we don’t expect the tussle at Oriel Park to produce a deluge of action. Dundalk are averaging just 1.09 goals per 90 minutes at home this season, while Drogheda have notched just one goal in their last four Premier Division matches. With reliable goal-getters in short supply in both camps, we’re backing under 2.5 goals to be scored this week.

Dundalk to Win to Nil

Drogheda’s dismal run of form has coincided with a massive drop-off in their output in the final third. Tim Clancy’s men have scored only once in their last 360 minutes of Premier Division football and they drew a blank in three of their last four matches overall. Dundalk beat The Turks to nil when the teams last met on June 21 and they can repeat that trick on Friday.

Dundalk vs Drogheda Utd: Match Preview


Dundalk performed valiantly in defeat when they were toppled over two legs by Vitesse in their recent Europa Conference League qualifiers, though their continental exertions had a visible impact on their Premier Division performances. With European distractions pushed aside, Vinny Perth’s men should be able to tackle Friday’s fixture against Drogheda with renewed focus however.


As luck would have it, Drogheda’s form has tailed off badly since they rewarded manager Tim Clancy with a new contract and their return of just one win from their last ten games in all competitions is a relegation standard run. With just one goal in his last ten appearances, striker Mark Doyle seems to have lost his shooting boots and with the 22-year-old out of sorts, Drogheda have looked a far less threatening prospect.
