Tip Reasoning

  • Second-placed Derry City have the League of Ireland’s fourth-best defensive record, conceding just 16 goals in 18 league games.
  • Finn Harps have lost four consecutive league games.
  • The visitors have scored just 13 goals in 17 league games this term, the second-lowest tally in the division.

Out-of-form sides meet in Derry

Derry City may sit second in the League of Ireland Premier Division, but a five-match winless run has left Ruaidhri Higgins’ men seven points off the pace set by Shamrock Rovers. A home contest with local rivals Finn Harps, sat ninth in the 10-team division after 17 games, however, could represent the perfect opportunity for the hosts to get back on track.

While Derry’s run of five without victory – the last three of them defeats – has undoubtedly been frustrating, four of those contests saw them face fellow top-five sides, and Friday’s contest should be more routine. Derry have been beaten just twice in their eight home games this term, and have conceded just 16 goals in 18 league games, the fourth-best such record in the division, which they will be hopefully of maintaining against their impotent visitors.

Indeed, Finn Harps have lost four league games on the bounce, and have won just one of their eight road games, losing five. Furthermore, the visitors’ tally of just 13 league goals this term is worse than all bar rock-bottom UCD, and they have been shut out in two of their last three games.

Solid Derry can end poor run

Despite the hosts’ poor run of form, backing Derry to win to nil seems the best available play considering Finn Harps’ dreadful attacking returns, with the home side simply far too short to offer any value on the win market.

A routine 2-0 victory for the hosts, meanwhile, seems a decent correct score play.
