Match result: St Patrick's Athletic

Not only are St Patrick's Athletic right in the mix at the top of the league, they're also in possession of the best home record in the entire league having collected 18 points from their eight home matches so far. Their recent form is decent enough as well with three wins in their last five matches including back to back victories ahead of this match. Finn Harps by contrast have suffered three defeats in their previous five. As for head to head meetings, Finn Harps lost on their last two visits to Richmond Park.

Over/Under goals: Over 2.5

We'll be honest, St Patrick's Athletic vs Finn Harps coming in over 2.5 goals is something that is likely to be tight but there are a couple of reasons we think it's a good bet. Firstly, the fact it's a prediction that is in the balance means you get more reasonable odds and, secondly, there are supporting stats to suggest it comes in as a winner. Take the hosts, St Patrick's Athletic, as an example; their form over the season has seen their games average 2.5 goals per match – bang on the money. Finally, if you look at the last five games for each team, you'll see both have broken the 2.5 goals mark in three of them.

Anytime scorer: Ronan Coughlan

We've already made the prediction that St Patrick's Athletic will win this match whilst our last tip backs this match to be an entertaining one in the goal scoring department. If those betting predictions come true then it's highly likely that Ronan Coughlan pops up with a goal. Coughlan has five league goals to his name so far this campaign with two of them coming in his last two outings.

St Patrick's Athletic vs Finn Harps: Match Overview

St Patrick's Athletic

The hosts arrive in this match sitting second in the table but with their home form being even better than that; it means they'll not only hope to get a positive result but they'll expect one. Part of that strong home form is the best defensive record in the league. They could opt for a three or four man backline but either way there will be two names likely to ensure the solidity remains – Barrett Paddy and Lee Desmond. At the other end, it's all about our goal scorer tip, Ronan Coughlan.

Finn Harps

If St Patrick's Athletic come into the game as favourites, that makes Finn Harps the underdogs. They won't mind that tag but they will need to produce a performance of near perfection to get a decent result. Their form to date has been very much middle of the road in every way. They're midtable, their goal scoring isn't great and isn't terrible and their defensive record is similar. What they do have though is a man who knows where the goal is in Adam Foley; he's scored two in his last four and is joint second in the league scoring charts despite operating in midfield.
