The postponed clash of the 4th round between Derry City and Dundalk is going to take place on Monday evening.
Home side is keeping up with the top teams and they have suffered only one defeat in the last five games. They are five points away from the 3rd spot but Derry City played one game less than their rivals. Aaron McEneff and the lads are the second most productive team in the competition by having scored 28 goals so far. They still haven’t been defeated at home pitch and have allowed just two points to their visitors.
The current runners-up are sitting on the 2nd place and are just one point away from the top spot. Although they have suffered two defeats in the last five games, they are the best attacking side while their defence allowed just seven goals. However, they suffered two straight defeats from the last two outings and the visitors are searching for better results at away grounds.
Derry City vs Dundalk: Head-to-head
Derry City have celebrated a win against this opposition just once since 2013 and since then they have met each other in 19 occasions. Their clashes are pretty efficient ones and in the last three matches the crowd was able to see four goals per match.
Derry City vs Dundalk: Prediction
Although the hosts have been playing fairly good so far, Stephen Kenny’s side should be able to get back home with three points. Dundalk are one of the main title contenders and they should be able to continue with good performances.
As this is the clash of two most efficient sides in the competition, it is natural to expect at least three goals in this one. Although the visitors have the tightest defensive line, they will have a tough task to defend their net.
