St. Patrick’s Athletic to Win

It didn’t take long for St. Patrick’s Athletic to recover from their 3-1 defeat to title rivals Shamrock Rovers at the end of July and the Saints bounced straight back with successive victories against Dundalk and Waterford. With the ship steadied, in-form Pats are our tip to make it three wins from three on Friday evening when they face a Finn Harps team they demolished 4-1 back in June.

Over 1.5 St. Patrick’s Athletic Team Goals

St. Patrick’s Athletic’s comfortable win over Finn Harps two months ago was the third straight encounter with them where the Saints scored at least twice and Stephen O'Donnell’s high-fliers have the firepower to blow holes in the same defence on Friday. Pats are the highest-scoring team in the Premier Division this term (42 goals) and they are worth backing to net over 1.5 times against Finn Harps this week.

Both Teams to Score

Fresh from back-to-back league wins for the first time since March, Finn Harps should have renewed confidence and that could allow them to net a consolation effort on Friday. BTTS has landed in three of the Harps’ last four Premier Division tussles in Ballybofey and in two of their las three skirmishes with St. Patrick’s Athletic. We expect that pattern to continue later this week.

Finn Harps vs St Patrick's Athletic: Match Preview

Finn Harps

Finn Harps gave their survival hopes a shot in the arm with a resounding 3-0 win at bottom club Longford last week, though their form at home continues to be a major concern. Ollie Horgan’s troops have gathered just two points from their last eight league games at Finn Park and only the aforementioned Longford have won fewer points on their own patch overall this term.

St. Patrick’s Athletic

St. Patrick’s Athletic are still firmly in the hunt for the Premier Division title and they trail leaders and Dublin rivals Shamrock Rovers by just three points at the summit of the table. The Saints have frustrated on the road at times this season, though they remain a hugely dangerous force in the final third and they have scored more away goals than any other club in the competition so far (20).
