Bray Wanderers vs Shamrock Rovers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 20th October 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Carlisle Grounds (Bray).
Shamrock Rovers dropped the ball last week when they only drew 1-1 with Sligo Rovers at home to barely maintain the one-point cushion ahead of Derry City in the battle for the third place.
The Hoops now have the imperative of claiming points against non-motivated Bray Wanderers if they are top play European football next summer.
Bray have been playing hot and cold throughout the entire season which can be regarded as a failure for them as The Seagulls can’t reach the third place in the remaining two games of the campaign.
The inconsistency in Derry’s performances can best be noticed by the look at their recent results.
Harry Kenny’s men demolished the fourth-placed Derry City 0-5 on the road just two weeks before drawing 3-3 with the relegation-threatened Galway United in front of their fans.
Stephen Bradley’s side has not been much more consistent either as of late, but they still have a nice chance of saving the third position and secure their place in Europa League qualifications next year.
Derry have an away fixture against the ninth-placed Sligo Rovers and any other result but a victory here would jeopardize Shamrock’s ambitions of saving the third spot.
Bray Wanderers vs Shamrock Rovers: Head to head
The Hoops have been much more successful over the history, but they failed to come on top in any of their three previous visits to Carlisle Ground.
Speaking of these, Shamrock’s last trip to Bray saw them conceded as many as four.
Bray Wanderers vs Shamrock Rovers: Prediction
Bray suffered a tight 1-0 defeat at the second-placed Dundalk last time out, while none of last three of Shamrock’s outings produced three or more goals.
Given the fact four of last five H2H meetings between the two likes also ended in low-scoring contests, we just have to back the Under 2.5 goals FT at the 1.80 as the main betting call.
Bray Wanderers vs Shamrock Rovers: Bet Tips
