Waterford bid to move clear of drop zone

Waterford looked like a lost cause just a few weeks ago but three wins in their last five games has seen them move to within a point of safety ahead of Friday’s trip to Drogheda.

The visitors have managed six wins in 21 games in Ireland’s Premier Division and four of those successes have come in their last seven games, and they also picked up an FAI Cup win over second tier Athlone after penalties last time out.

Drogheda sit just outside the European places but their form has tailed off in recent weeks.  The Drogs have just one win in their last six league games, with two draws and three defeats, and were dumped out of the cup by Derry in their last fixture.

Waterford’s away form has been key to their revival and they have managed nine points from the last 12 available on their travels.  Two of those victories have come against the two other teams in the bottom three, but they did claim a 1-0 win over title hopefuls at home Sligo in their last league fixture.

Drogheda have lost three of their last four home games and we feel they could be set for another defeat against an in-form Waterford outfit.  The safer option would be to back the Blues in the double chance market but it is worth taking them on to win the game given their recent good run of results.  The hosts have only failed to score in two of their 10 home games in the league this season, so we feel a 2-1 win for Waterford has a chance in the correct score market.
