- Head in the Game Park
- Both teams have scored in the last three Finn Harps away games and five of the last six Drogheda United home games.
- Finn Harps have lost only two of their nine away league matches in 2021.
- Drogheda United drew 1-1 with Finn Harps earlier this season.
Draw beckons for out-of-form duo
Drogheda United take on Finn Harps in a clash between two out-of-form sides in the Premier Division on Friday.
A draw following back-to-back defeats has left Drogs nine points off the title-chasing trio.
Harps have tumbled to third-bottom of the pile after a taking only two points from the last possible 15 on offer, albeit having faced all three title contenders during that spell.
The draw Tim Clancy’s side got last time out was a bit of a coupon buster because it came at the home of defending champions Shamrock Rovers.
Chris Lyons’ debateable penalty levelled matters – after a similarly questionable spot-kick had been put away by Graham Burke in the first half – to end Drogs’ 273-minute goal drought.
The result should encourage them, but the lack of goals still concerns ahead of a match against a side who haven’t had any problem scoring on their travels.
Harps have scored six in their last five away trips and should be good for a goal at Head in the Game Park – where they grabbed a 1-1 draw earlier this season.
The form points to another draw with both teams on the scoresheet with the last six Harps games landing the ‘both teams to score’ bet well before full-time.
Our forecast of another 1-1 is based on Drogheda United averaging 1.33 goals at home and conceding exactly one per game – similar numbers to the visitors’ away record.
