A serious turnaround in form is required for the team led by Kenny Shiels if they are to stay in the contest for the Europa League football next term. The Candystripes still sit fourth just six points below the top-three spots, but there is just nothing suggesting the exit from the crisis for them here at Dalymount Park.

The Bohs have also been miles away from their best shape at the start of the season which is why they currently occupy seventh place in the league ladder. Keith Long’s troops took only two points from last three league outings.

Bohemians vs Derry City: Head-to-head

  • Derry City completely dominated this match-up in the most recent history.
  • The Candystripes won as many as ten consecutive matches against Bohemians.
  • Derry City won both of two H2H clashes in this tern of the Premier Division (0-1 and 3-1).
  • The Bohs scored just one goal in last four encounters with Derry City.

Bohemians vs Derry City: Predictions

The hosts will have a nice chance to improve their attacking record in matches against Derry City and end the horrendous H2H streak here. The visitors were anything but meticulous at the back lately allowing ten goals in last three league fixtures. We are thus tempted to go with the Bohs to net two or more goals at 2.25, but knowing that Long’s men struggled badly for goals in front of the home crowed so far in the season, we’ll skip such bet.

The draw pops up as the most logical of the betting options as we expect a tight and nervous affair with very few goal scoring chances at each end. Both teams head into this low on confidence and we have to try with the Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.80 odds.

Bohemians vs Derry City: Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.80
  • Draw @ 3.20.
