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

Derry City to Win

Derry City put in a performance worthy of potential title winners last week when they trounced UCD 7-1 and with their confidence fully topped up, the Premier Division’s early pace-setters will be targeting more success at St. Patrick’s Athletic on Friday. City have yet to taste defeat on the road this term and having already beaten Pats once in March, the Candystripes are favoured to prevail again.

Both Teams to Score

While we expect Derry City to keep their early title charge on track this week, Friday’s trip to Richmond Park is unlikely to be smooth sailing all the way. Pats have only failed to score once at home this season and they notched a consolation effort when they lost 2-1 at Derry last month. We’re tipping the teams to trade blows again in Friday’s rematch, so back both teams to score in Dublin.

Will Patching to Score Anytime

Prolific midfielder Will Patching fired home both of Derry’s goals when they beat St. Patrick’s Athletic 2-1 in March and the 23-year-old stands out at a price worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market again on Friday. Influential schemer Patching has already hit an impressive six goals in 12 appearances in 2022 and he wields enough self-belief to make his mark again this week.

St Patrick’s Athletic vs Derry City Match Preview and Team News

St. Patrick’s Athletic

Midfielders Adam Murphy and Jamie Lennon are both expected to miss out for St. Patrick’s Athletic this week, while Patrick Barrett is considered doubtful at the back. Pats have just recorded back-to-back victories over bottom two UCD and Finn Harps, though they struggled against some tougher opponents before that when they went four games without a win.

Derry City

Ciaron Harkin and Michael Duffy are closing in on a return for Derry, though Friday’s fixture could come too early for both as they close in on a comeback. City sent a warning shot to their title rivals with their 7-1 demolition job on UCD last time out, though their lead at the summit is still a fragile-looking one point.
