St. Patrick’s Athletic to Win

St. Patrick’s Athletic will be out for revenge on Friday for their 3-1 reverse at Drogheda back in May and the title hopefuls are worth backing to claim maximum points this time around. The Saints top the Premier Division home table this season having won eight of their ten games at Richmond Park and they are our pick to keep the superb results coming on their own patch this week.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams found the net in each of the last two encounters between St. Patrick’s Athletic and Drogheda United and the same market holds plenty of appeal on Friday. BTTS landed in three of the Saints’ last four league fixtures while goals were notched by both teams in each of Drogheda’s last three assignments. Those records make a compelling case for backing BTTS again at Richmond Park.

Over 2.5 Goals

The last two meetings between St. Patrick’s Athletic and Drogheda were pulsating slugfests where an average of 3.5 goals hit the net per 90 minutes. The Drogs have been excellent value in the entertainment stakes for much of the campaign, especially on the road where their fixtures have averaged 3.2 goals. With healthy numbers to draw confidence from, we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to be scored again this week.

St Patrick's Athletic vs Drogheda United: Match Preview

St. Patrick’s Athletic

The Saints bounced back from their disappointing defeat to neighbours Bohemians in typically determined fashion last week when they beat Derry City 1-0 despite playing the final 30 minutes of the game with ten men. That victory means that Pats are still within touching distance of top spot and a wide-margin win on Friday would send them into the weekend as league leaders.

Drogheda United

Highly-rated manager Tim Clancy put pen to paper on a new two-year contract with Drogheda United this week – a deal that was richly deserved following the Drogs’ excellent start to the 2021 campaign. The newly-promoted outfit have been matching the division’s big-hitters stride for stride for most of the season, though their recent slump of just one win in five games is cause for concern.
