Bohemians vs Derry City
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 21st July 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Dalymount Park.
Both Bohemians and Derry City will be hoping to bounce back after disappointing defeats in the previous round of Premier Division.
The Gypsies entered a negative run as they lost their second consecutive fixture and stopping it will be quite a challenge against the Candystripes who belong to the top half of the Irish football.
Bohs had an early lead last weekend at Finn Park as their top scorer Daniel Corcoran took his league tally to 11 by pushing them in charge, but they just failed to hold on to the lead conceding two to lose the second match in a row.
Keith Long’s men will be hoping to build on the fine defensive displays in their latest games at Dalymount Park where they conceded only a single goal (to Dundalk) in last three matches.
The Candystripes are clearly shaken by two demolishing losses to Midtjylland in Europa League.
Derry City seem to have recovered with an impressive 4-0 win over Sligo Rovers, but they dropped the ball against one of the weakest sides in the competition (the Pats)
The loss left Kenny Shiels’ men winless in ten consecutive outings on the road.
Bohemians vs Derry City: Head to head
Derry City have completely dominated this match-up over the last couple of years as they have won each of their last six meetings with the Bohs.
This includes a comfortable 2-0 victory in early-May this year when Jarvis and McEneff bagged goals for the Candystripes at Maginn Park.
Bohemians vs Derry City: Prediction
Even though Derry City have more quality in their squad, we simply have to take advantage of the situation and back the Gypsies not to lose the match at sky-high 17/20 odds.
The visitors are winless in last ten fixtures on the road and they will leave plenty of space at the back.
It will be the music to the ears of the red-hot Daniel Corcoran who is well worth backing as an anytime goalscorer at the odds of 7/4.
