With their sights now firmly set on securing a Europa League finish this season, Derry City will travel to a struggling UCD on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a woeful return to the Premier Division, UCD sit in pole position for the drop this season. In their 26 matches this season, they have recorded just five wins, two draws and 19 defeats, scoring 17 and conceding 49 in return. Along with being sat 10 points adrift of safety, it is also worth noting that UCD hold the attacking record in Ireland’s top-tier. As for their recent run of results, Friday’s hosts have recorded just two wins in their last 18 matches across all competitions and they have also now lost six of their last eight Premier Division matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a stable run of form, Derry City now sit within touching distance of climbing into the top-three. In their 27 Premier Division matches this year, they have recorded 11 wins, 10 draws and six defeats, scoring 41 and conceding 25 in return. With a points tally of 43, another victory on Friday could see Derry leapfrog Bohemians to that final Europa League spot. As for their recent run of results, winning two of their last three contests, it is also worth noting that the guests have also lost just one of their last seven matches across all competitions.
