St. Patrick’s Athletic to Win
St. Patrick’s Athletic snapped a four-match winless run with a 2-1 victory over UCD on Monday evening and with their confidence restored, Friday’s clash with struggling Finn Harps suddenly looks much more winnable. Finn Harps are one place off bottom in the Premier Division having won just once in 11 attempts so far and they look ill-equipped to stop Pats’ march towards the summit.
Over 1.5 St. Patrick’s Athletic Team Goals
Tim Clancy’s Athletic notched twice without reply when they beat Finn Harps in Ballybofey last month and Pats will fancy their chances of finding the net over 1.5 times again when they host the relegation contenders again on Friday. Harps have shipped two or more goals in six of their last eight Premier Division assignments and with manager Ollie Horgan struggling to plug the gaps in his team’s defence, St. Patrick’s could profit.
Both Teams to Score
While victories have been tough to secure for Finn Harps this term, they have a least retained a modicum of threat in the final third and hitting consolation efforts has become something of a specialty for Ollie Horgan’s charges. Indeed, both teams have scored in three of their last four matches, while Harps have impacted the scoresheet in 100% of their last three tests on the road. That record suggests that a stake on both teams to score on Friday could return dividends.
St Patrick’s Athletic vs Finn Harps Match Preview and Team News
St Patrick’s Athletic
Adam Murphy, Patrick Barrett and Jamie Lennon are all considered doubtful for St. Patrick’s Athletic ahead of Friday’s clash with Finn Harps. There are big expectations at the club this season following the arrival of highly-rated manager Tim Clancy and Pats are handily placed in third spot ahead of the latest round of fixtures in the Premier Division.
Conor Tourish and David Webster are both hoping to shake off knocks in time to play on Friday, though Eric McWoods is still out through suspension. Midfield pair Ryan Rainey and Elie N’Zeyi are both available again following recent bans, however. Only UCD have collected fewer points than Harps so far this term.
