Market: Bohemians win and under 3.5 goals

Odds: 23/20 @ 888sport

Seeing Friday as a golden chance to extend on their recent purple patch, Bohemians will welcome relegation scrappers Cork City to Dalymount Park this week.

Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another impressive display away at Premier Division returners Shelbourne last weekend, Bohemians have really managed to bounce back since their back-to-back defeats against Shamrock and Waterford last month. Bagging a trio of strikes away at Tolka Park last time out, Keith Long’s men are storming towards another European finish this season and have now won each of their last three Premier Division contests on the bounce. Collecting 24 points over their last 10 domestic contests, fans around Dalymount Park will also be boosted by their side’s continued success on home soil. Including a 2-1 victory against defending champions Dundalk, Bohemians have remarkably won six of their last seven home fixtures and will be hugely confident of cashing in on their recent purple patch on Friday evening.

On the flip side, while Bohemians might be marching towards another top-three finish, Cork find themselves battling it out at the foot of the table and are already seen as a landslide favourite to be hit with the drop this season. Making their trip to Dalymount Park this week sat two points adrift at the bottom of the standings, the Rebel Army once again struggled as St. Patrick’s Athletic picked up a 2-1 win on their travels last weekend. With the pressure still firmly on Neale Fenn’s shoulders, Cork find themselves on the midst of a six-match winless run that stems back to August 18th. In for what should be another extremely tough test when they travel to the European contenders on Friday evening, it should also be noted that they hold a worrying record against Bohemians. Hit with back-to-back 1-0 losses against the hosts, we’re backing a similar outcome this week.
