Waterford Double Chance
Bohemians are making waves in Europe at the moment, though the rigours of their energy-sapping continental clashes should leave them jaded for their trip to Waterford on Saturday. The Blues have been making positive strides under Marc Bircham and they are unbeaten in four games ahead of their tussle with Bohs. The Gypsies meanwhile, have failed to win five of their last six Premier Division fixtures on the road and with fatigue a factor, they could drop more points in Waterford.
Under 2.5 Goals
With Bohs likely to be drained and Waterford putting a greater focus on defence under the instruction of Marc Bircham, we expect a chess-like battle to develop at the Regional Sports Centre on Saturday. Three of the last four encounters between Waterford and Bohemians produced under 2.5 goals and we’re tipping their latest skirmish to be decided by fine margins again.
Waterford +1 Goal
Bohemians are a prolific force on their own patch, however, their output in the final third inexplicably dries up on the road. The Gypsies have notched one or fewer times in eight of their last nine league games away from Dalymount Park and that poor record makes Waterford a superb price in the +1 match handicap market this week.
Waterford vs Bohemians: Match Preview
We tipped Waterford to avoid defeat at Drogheda last week and the Blues delivered the goods with a fine 2-1 win over The Turks. Marc Bircham’s men have been making steady progress since the Englishman took the reins in May and Waterford are targeting their fourth straight Premier Division victory on Saturday.
Bohemians haven’t played a Premier Division fixture since July 18 due to their European commitments and the Gypsies’ recorded a historic 2-1 victory over Greek giants PAOK in midweek in the Europa Conference qualifiers. Bohs will travel to Thessaloniki for the tie’s second-leg just a few days after their trip to play Waterford and with a huge financial windfall on the cards if they succeed in Greece, their focus could slip against the Blues.
