Odds: 2/1 @ Bet 365
Looking to close the gap at the top of the First Division, Drogheda United will host leading relegation contenders Wexford on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on a bright run of form, Drogheda still have their sights set on securing a Premier Division return for next season. In their 23 First Division matches this year, they have won 14, drawn three and lost six, scoring 49 and conceding 29 in return. Now sat five points adrift of league leaders Shelbourne, it is worth noting that Friday’s guests do hold the best-attacking record in the second-tier. As for their recent run of results, now enjoying a four-match unbeaten run and winning three of those contests, Drogheda have scored two or more goals in each of those victories.
As for the visitors, continuing on a very concerning run of form, Wexford now find themselves in pole position for the drop this season. In their 23 First Division matches this year, they have recorded just two victories, five draws and 16 defeats, scoring 20 and conceding 31 in return. Now sat five points adrift at the foot of the table, it is also worth noting that they hold the worst attacking record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Wexford have lost their last three matches on the bounce, conceding 11 goals on that losing run.
