Derry City put their nine-match unbeaten run on the line when they take on Shelbourne in the Premier Division on Friday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Bohemians to Win

Red-hot Derry City are already six points clear at the summit of the Premier Division after just nine games and the Candystripes look ready to collect their eighth victory in ten matches at Shelbourne’s expense on Friday. Shels have managed to win only twice so far and their confidence should be fragile following a run of two defeats in their last three outings. Derry are setting a searing pace in the title race, so back the hosts to prevail again.

Over 1.5 Derry City Team Goals

Ruaidhrí Higgins’ Derry have looked like potential title-winners in the opening exchanges of the new campaign and City are really starting to click as an attacking force. The Candystripes have scored over 1.5 goals in 100% of their last five Premier Division matches and the hosts are available at a price worth backing in the same team goals market against a Shelbourne outfit they’ve already been once this term.

Will Patching to Score Anytime

Derry’s capture of Will Patching from rivals Dundalk in the close season was considered something of a coup and the impactful midfielder has already shown his class for his new employers. The ex-Man City academy starlet has notched four times in his last four appearances for City and the 23-year-old can add to his impressive early haul against Shelbourne.

Derry City vs Shelbourne Match Preview and Team News

Derry City

Derry City could be without midfielder pair Michael Duffy and Ciaron Harkin this week, though they didn’t need either player to win 2-1 at Finn Harps last time out. Derry are in the midst of a six-game winning streak in the Premier Division – a run they kicked off with a 1-0 triumph at Shelbourne on March 4th.

Shelbourne

Jonathan Lunney, Jack Moylan, Adam Thomas and Sean McSweeney all sat out Shelbourne’s 2-1 reverse at home toe Dublin rivals Shamrock Rovers last week and all four players could be absent again on Friday. Shels will be relatively pleased with their nine-point bounty from their first nine matches in the Premier Division since their promotion, though their return of just six goals so far is underwhelming.
