Competition: Irish Premier Division
Market: Waterford to score over 0.5 goals
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a stellar run of form on the road, Waterford will make the trip to a struggling Drogheda on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, crashing out of the FAI Cup last weekend, Drogheda find themselves in the midst of what has become a worrying run of form. In their 21 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, six draws and seven defeats, scoring 34 and conceding 25 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 30, they open Friday’s fixtures sat fifth in the table and just a single point adrift of finding a route into the top-four. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen crashing out of the FAI Cup thanks to a penalties defeat against Derry City, this weekend’s hosts have managed to win just one of their last seven matchups across all formats. It should also be noted, Drogheda have failed to record a single clean sheet in any of their last 10 straight attempts, a run that stems back to May 21st.
As for the visitors, managing to extend on their FAI Cup run last weekend thanks to a stunning victory, Waterford have continued on a real purple patch of late. In their 21 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, one draw and 14 defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 39 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 19, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat one-point adrift in the relegation play-off spot. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a penalties victory against Athlone Town following a stunning 4-4 draw, Waterford are enjoying a three-match winning run across all formats. It should also be noted, Friday’s guests have won four of their last five fixtures on the road.
