Waterford 4/9 to beat Bray in Friday’s Irish First Division matchup
Competition: Irish First Division
Market: Waterford win
Odds: 4/9 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a real purple patch, Waterford will host Bray on Friday night when this weekend’s First Division matchups get underway.
Starting with the hosts, last seen putting in another thumping display, Waterford are in the midst of what has become a stellar run of form. In their 16 Irish First Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded 10 wins, two draws and four defeats, scoring 35 and conceding 16 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 32, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat third in the table and holding a commanding 12-point buffer from dropping out of the play-off places. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a thumping 4-0 romp against Treaty United on home soil, Waterford have won each of their previous six contests on the spin. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Friday’s hosts have scored at least a trio of goals in their last four First Division victories.
As for the visitors, putting in what was a nightmare display last weekend, Bray are enduring what has been an extended rut. In their 18 First Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded just three wins, eight draws and seven defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 30 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 17, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat seventh in the standings and six points adrift of breaking into the top-half. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a thumping 5-1 loss against Galway on home soil, Bray have now managed to win just one of their last 13 First Division contests. Given what has been a huge recent gulf in class between the two sides, it is hard to see anything other than a routine home victory for a high-flying Waterford here.
