Competition: Irish Premier Divison
Market: Dundalk win
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Picking up a 2-1 win at Richmond Park on Monday night, Dundalk will be looking to do a Cup and League double when they face St Patrick’s once again on Friday.
Starting with the hosts, coming of the back of crashing out the League Cup and suffering their fourth defeat on the bounce on Monday night, it has been nothing short of a worrying campaign for St Patrick’s. Already sat way down in seventh and seven points adrift of their hosts on Friday, Liam Buckley will be growing most concerned by his sides ongoing issues in the final third. Now scoring just three goals in their opening seven matches in the new Premier Division campaign, they have now failed to find the net in over 300 minutes of league action. Also losing their last two outings at Richmond Park, Friday could prove to be another extremely tough test.
As for the visitors, knocking St Patrick’s out of the League Cup on Monday and really enjoying a bright run of form, the defending champions will be desperate to close the gap on fellow high-flyers Shamrock Rovers. Yet to taste defeat across any competition so far this year, it will be their ongoing defensive stability most impressing fans around Oriel Park. The Reds have kept four Premier Division clean sheets on the spin and Vinny Perth’s side also hold a very eye-catching record against Friday’s hosts. Including their victory at Richmond Park earlier in the week, Dundalk are unbeaten in their last nine matches against St Patrick’s a run that stems back to November 2016.
Bet: Dundalk 4/6 to beat St Patrick’s Athletic in Friday’s Irish Premier Division clash @ Bet 365
