Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams scored in seven of Derry’s home games, a joint league-high.
  • Both teams scored in two thirds of Drogheda’s away league games.
  • Derry are unbeaten in ten of the last 11 home H2H meetings.

Derry’s title hopes hang by a thread

While there are still many points to play for, a run of six consecutive league games without victory has left Derry’s title charge in need of an adrenaline shot. Still sitting in third, a win over lowly Drogheda could be just the result they need to provide a springboard to chase down league leaders Shamrock Rovers.

They may need a couple of goals to ensure victory though, given that Derry failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 of their 19 league games so far. However given their failure to defend well at times, their league position is largely owed to their joint league-best attack which has found the net 33 times, suggesting we could be in for another goal fest here.

Drogheda look to continue fine form

Just one place separates Drogheda from the drop zone and while they have a nine point cushion, that can soon dissipate with a run of bad results. Luckily for them, they enter this clash on a run of three unbeaten games (W2, D1), which most impressively includes a victory over league leaders Shamrock Rovers!

We predict that Derry’s sour run of results combined with Drogheda’s sudden purple patch is a perfect storm for goals at both ends. As such, we are going for a both teams to score bet, accompanied by a 3-1 home win in the correct score market as Derry look to bounce back following a mini break in action.
