Bohemians vs Bray Wanderers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 4th August 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Dalymount Park (Dublin).
The dry spell is temporarily over from the Bohemians after bagging back-to-back wins. Their most recent one is a big confidence booster as it came against the league leaders Cork City. This could be a significant result in the title run this season as Cork were unbeaten in 22 matches until that point.
The wins against Shamrock Rovers and Cork pushed Bohemians to sixth in the league table. However, they are one of the worst home teams in the league managing 3 wins from the 12 matches so far, losing in 7.
On the other hand, Bray Wanderers sit above Bohemians in the table with a 1 point lead. They lost ground in recent weeks and are coming on the back of a four match losing streak. They conceded 11 goals in the process, a minimum of 2 per game. It is pretty clear that they are on a downward spiral and have managed only 2 wins from the last 11 games.
Bohemians vs Bray Wanderers: Head-to-head
The teams already met twice this season and Bohemians won on both occasions, 3-2 at home and 2-1 away.
At home, Bohemians boast of a five match unbeaten run in Premier Division matches against Bray. However, 3 of those matches are draws.
Bohemians vs Bray Wanderers: Prediction
Despite having the form on their side, Bohemians must improve a lot to turnaround their disappointing turnarounds at Dalymount Park. The team have failed to bet in 3 of the 4 games at this ground, could be a morale destroying stat against a Bray Wanderers who netted 6 goals in their last 3 away games.
We must expect this to be a tight clash, with both teams having plenty of weaknesses in all departments. The full-time result can go either-ways and therefore we will bank on the goal markets.
