Reason For Dundalk vs Waterford United Predictions

  • Waterford have won both away games in the league, conceding none
  • Dundalk have won one of their last four matches
  • Waterford have taken seven points from the last three games

Dundalk’s league title ambitions look pretty remote and Waterford may smell blood at Oriel on Friday evening.

For a start, there is no home crowd to cheer on the hosts, who were far from convincing on Tuesday in getting the better of the Blues in the FAI Cup. 

Waterford will sense vulnerability from that game and look huge odds considering they have taken seven points from their last three matches. They have also won both of their away games in the LOI.

Moreover, Dundalk’s defending was really worrying in the 2-1 defeat against Bohemians, when the Gypsies were constantly creating chances. There have been big changes in Dundalk’s management this season and the body language of some of their players against Bohs was less than convincing.

Waterford are limited but John Sheridan has them well set up. Indeed, since he took over, they have conceded just one goal in the league, and Michael O’Connor will fancy netting one against his old club. 

Dundalk lost their last league game 2-1 against Bohs and could be heading for another loss by the same score.
