The reigning champions continued their spell of excellent form on a tough away fixture at in-form Bray Wanderers on Friday when they claimed an easy 0-3 win.

The Lilywhites will be hoping to build on it this Wednesday when they are set to tackle Bohemians who have also been enjoying a thrilling run of form over the last couple of weeks.

Bohemians

The hosts climbed up the Premier Division ladder thanks to a positive streak of three wins and a draw in last four league outings.

The manager Keith Long can be especially satisfied with his team’s defensive line which allowed no more than a single goal in last three fixtures.

The latest of the successes came on Friday when the hosts clinched a comfortable 2-0 win over Sligo Rovers. The star man Dinny Corcoran was on target once again as he took his league tally to 10 goals in 12 appearances for Bohemians.

Dundalk

The Lilywhites may have lost the title race with Cork City who have been impeccable so far in the season, but they still remain a formidable force when it comes to the rest of the league.

The 12-time Premier Division winners claimed four consecutive wins by at least two goals difference without conceding a single goal along the way.

Bohemians have been much more successful over the history, but Dundalk completely dominated the match-up in the most recent years.

The Lilywhites have four straight victories in meetings with Bohemians, including the one from mid-April this year at Oriel Park (2-0).

Bohemians vs Dundalk: Prediction

With all due respect to impressive defensive displays Bohemians showed lately, we can’t back anything else but Dundalk to maintain the hot run and claim a comprehensive win by at least two goals here.
