Bray Wanderers vs Bohemians: Preview and Predictions

Bray Wanderers vs Bohemians
Irish Premier Division
Date: Friday, 11 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Carlisle Grounds, Bray.

Bray Wanderers finally managed to see an end to a new horrific run by clinching the spoils against Derry City 2-1 at home seven days ago. It was only the second victory of the campaign for the Seagulls who still have a long way to go in order to catch up with the rest of the league being currently six points short of Limerick in ninth.

Can Graham Kelly’s men back up the mentioned win over the fourth-placed side on Friday evening when they host Bohemians at Carlisle Grounds? Such scenario would not be a miracle whatsoever according to Bohs’ form in recent weeks. The visitors head into this off the back of four losses in last six matches which makes us question the value of the 2.05 odds offered for their victory here.

Bray Wanderers vs Bohemians: Head-to-head

The head to head stats entirely fancy Bohemians who lead the tie by 30 wins coming into 65th meeting with the Seagulls.

Bohs won 19 and lost only 6 of 29 matches at Carlisle Grounds.

Four of last five H2H contests saw the BTTS pick “come in”.

Bohemians won three and drew one of last four head to head encounters with the Seagulls.

Bray Wanderers vs Bohemians: Prediction

The current form might not suggest that the visitors are clear favourites, but the H2H trend certainly does. Nevertheless, we must admit Bray’s game looks to have improved significantly under Graham Kelly who took charge just recently in April and we just have to try with the home win longshot at 3the sky-high 3.75 knowing that the Seagulls won two of last three home games in the competition.

The match should not produce plenty of action or goal-scoring chances given that neither of the two sides can be particularly proud of the start of the season. Bohs failed to find the back of the net in three of last five league ties and they are now up against the team which has the weakest attacking record with just 8 goals in 15 games so far in the season. The Under 2.5 goals looks like a logical choice at 1.75.
