St. Patrick’s Athletic to Win
St. Patrick’s Athletic’s 3-2 defeat to local rivals Bohemians last week was a bitter pill to swallow, though Stephen O'Donnell’s men could bounce straight back against Derry. Pats have collected more points at home than any other team in the Premier Division and they can get their title tilt back on track with a victory on Friday.
Over 1.5 St. Patrick’s Athletic Team Goals
Only two clubs have scored more often than St. Patrick’s Athletic this season and The Saints have the tools in the final third to add to their 32-goal haul for the campaign against Derry. Pats have notched at least two goals in four of their last five matches and they found the net twice in each of their last two encounters with The Candystripes.
Both Teams to Score
Derry City’s impressive knack of finding the net should allow them to hit a consolation effort this week. Derry have scored at least once in each of their last 15 league matches, while BTTS has landed in ten of their last 12 fixtures overall.
St Patrick's Athletic vs Derry City: Match Preview
St. Patrick’s Athletic
Stephen O'Donnell’s Pats have been performing above expectations this season and they have been keeping pace with the division’s front runners so far. While their 3-2 reverse to Dublin rivals Bohemians last time out was enough to shake spirits in the camp, their run of seven wins from nine matches at Richmond Park is a record they can draw plenty of fresh confidence from.
Derry City have been dogged performers under Ruaidhrí Higgins and The Candystripes have tasted defeat just once in their last ten contests. However, City have fast become the division’s draw specialists and 50% of their last ten fixtures finished all square. Derry also carry a problem or two in defence and they have kept just three clean sheets in 19 matches since the campaign kicked off.
