Drogheda Double Chance
Following a significant exodus in the off-season, Bohemians haven’t looked themselves in the early weeks of the new Premier Division campaign and the Gypsies’ 1-0 win at Sligo on Tuesday evening was only their second win in eight games so far. With the short turnaround between fixtures a factor, Bohs could be a little jaded for their trip to play a Drogheda outfit that are unbeaten in three matches, so side with the hosts in the double chance market.
Both Teams to Score
With just three clean sheets between them in their first 16 Premier Division contests combined this term, both Drogheda and Bohemians have looked suspect defensively. With issues at the back prevalent on either side, we expect chances to be conceded by both backlines at the Head in the Game Park on Friday evening. BTTS has landed in three of the last four meetings between the clubs and the same market is an appealing choice at the prices on offer here.
Drogheda +1.0 Goal Handicap
With leading marksman Georgie Kelly no longer with the club, Bohemians have looked worryingly toothless this season and without a focal point up front, they have averaged just 1.0 goal per 90 minutes so far. The Gypsies seemingly incapable of scoring more than once at the moment and Drogheda could be a strong option to consider in the +1.0 goal handicap market this week as a consequence.
Drogheda United vs Bohemians Match Preview and Team News
Darragh Markey is a doubt for Drogheda this week with a muscle injury, though manager Kevin Doherty has few worries elsewhere. The Drogs followed up their 1-0 win at home to Dundalk with useful, successive points on the road at St. Patrick’s Athletic and Finn Harps, though they needed an 85th minute Ryan Brennan equalizer to earn a share of the spoils in Ballybofey.
A knee injury could keep James Finnerty on the sidelines for Bohemians on Friday, though Keith Long has a strong squad to choose from elsewhere. The Gypsies’ 1-0 win at Sligo on Tuesday evening was hard-earned, though another tough test on Friday could prove a fixture too far for the club’s fatigued performers.
