Drogheda United vs Finn Harps
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 7th July 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hunky Dorys Park.
Can Drogheda United finally get their Premier Division on track this Friday when they are going to host fellow strugglers Finn Harps in a super important fixture of the Matchday No 21?
The hosts are on a terrible run of form having notched only a single goal in last eight outings.
The dreadful streak sees them sliding down to the 11th position after 20 rounds of the competition and a potential failure against Finn Harps on the home patch could possibly mean a farewell to the bench for Pete Mahon.
Staying safe will thus require a serious turnaround in form for the team which lost three games on the bounce with a horrendous goal differential of 1-12.
The visitors have not been much better either as they could not find the back of the net in each of their last three league fixtures.
The Harps are only a single point above Drogheda United and getting a positive result at Hunky Dorys Park would be of a huge significance for the coach Horgan and his men.
Drogheda United vs Finn Harps: Head to head
Drogheda celebrated one of their rare wins in this term of Premier Division just against Blue and White Army back in late April when they notched a comfortable 0-2 victory at Finn Park.
It was their second win in a row over Finn Harps who took their last victory over Drogheda back in 2008.
Drogheda United vs Finn Harps: Prediction
Since the match will have a massive importance for both sides, we expect to see a huge battle with the main happening taking place at the centre of the court.
In such scenario, we just can’t see how this one could turn out to offer a high-scoring affair.
Drogheda United vs Finn Harps: Bets
The main bet is going to be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 13/20.
Braver tipsters can back the draw at 2/1.
