St. Patrick’s Athletic to Win & Over 2 Goals Scored
Waterford have climbed the standings after a superb four-match winning run, though the Blues surge could hit a brick wall against free-scoring St. Patrick’s Athletic on Friday. The Saints have won each of their last five assignments at Richmond Park, netting an impressive 15 times along the way. With their attacking exploits turning heads, combining a St. Pats win with over two goals looks a smart move this week.
Both Teams to Score
While we expect St. Patrick’s Athletic to pocket the points on Friday, a much-improved Waterford outfit are capable of notching a consolation and that makes the both teams to score market an appealing prospect. The Blues have scored at least once in nine of their last ten fixtures and they are playing with enough confidence to test their host’s defence this week.
Over 1.5 St. Patrick’s Athletic Team Goals
St. Patrick’s Athletic have looked lethal in the final third this season and the four goals they plundered at Dundalk last week shot them to the top of the goalscoring charts in the Irish Premier Division. The Saints have hit at least two goals in seven of their last ten tussles overall and bettors are advised to take advantage of their prowess by backing them in the over 1.5 team goals market when Waterford visit Richmond Park.
St Patrick's Athletic vs Waterford: Match Preview
St. Patrick’s Athletic
With four wins from their last five games and seven victories in their last ten fixtures overall, St. Patrick’s Athletic gliding through the gears and the title hopefuls are favourites to collect three more Premier Division points on Friday. Stephen O'Donnell’s men are playing with a real swagger of late and their 4-1 win over a resurgent Dundalk last time out made for impressive viewing.
Blues boss Marc Bircham was handed a richly deserved new two-year contract this week following the spike in Waterford’s fortunes following his appointment in May. The club’s 1-0 win over a strong Bohemians team last week highlighted the incredible progress they are making under Bircham and the Blues’ look like leaving their early-season relegation worries behind.
