Drogheda United vs Limerick
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 30th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Hunky Dorys Park.

Last year’s First Division rivals are set to take on each other in the elite class of the Irish football for the second time this year.

The match is set to be played on Friday evening at Hunky Dorys Park.

Drogheda United

The hosts just can’t seem to find the way to end the horrendous run of seven consecutive matches without a victory.

Moreover, Pete Mahon’s men have failed to find the back of the net in six straight Premier Division outfits prior to bagging the consolation goal in a trashing 4-1 defeat to Shamrock Rovers last weekend.

The negative streak sees the team sliding down to the 10th position in the league standings.

Limerick

The visitors have had quite a rollercoaster campaign full of ups and downs since the start of the season.

The main problems for Neil McDonald (who took charge of the team last month) pop out at the back as the Super Blues just don’t seem to play defense at all.

They will come into the game having allowed as many as 12 goals in last four league fixtures.

Drogheda United vs Limerick: Head to head

Drogheda United have dominated this match-up historically, but Limerick have been much more successful in the recent period.

The visitors snatched four wins during the run of six consecutive encounters without a defeat to Drogheda.

Drogheda United vs Limerick: Prediction

This will be a fantastic chance for the visitors to bounce back, but also for the hosts to find the form in the final third against one of the weakest defensive sides in the league.

This just can’t be a low-scoring contest and we see the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS as a banker bet at the odds of 10/11.
