Galway vs Drogheda United
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 21st July 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Eamonn Deacy Park.
Galway United will have a fantastic opportunity for grabbing back-to-back wins for the first time this season on Friday evening when they host fellow strugglers Drogheda United in the Matchday No 23 of Premier Division.
The Tribesmen bagged three past the league’s newcomers Limerick two weeks ago to leave the very foot of the standings to the Drogs.
Ronan Murray, Padraic Cunningham and Eoin McCormack were on target in a comprehensive win over Limerick.
It was also the second straight fixture without a defeat for Shane Keegan’s men who have previously shared spoils with St. Patrick’s Athl. playing a 1-1 draw on the road.
The visitors were off to a positive start to the new season, but they just can’t seem to find the exit from the huge crisis.
Pete Mahon’s men have hit the rock-bottom after being winless since late-April (13 matches).
On the positive note, the Drogs held Sligo Rovers to a 1-1 draw last Saturday to at least interrupt the five-loss run.
Galway vs Drogheda United: Head to head
The two sides took on each other no more than five teams over the history. Drogheda have been slightly more successful winning two and losing a single of five outings.
The match from this term of Premier Division has seen Galway fighting out to a 2-2 draw thanks to Jesse Devers’ equaliser in the dying minutes of the game.
Galway vs Drogheda United: Prediction
The Tribesmen should really not miss out on a great chance to take advantage of the momentum and escape the red zone.
Since both sides have been very easy to break down lately, we would also suggest the BTTS pick at the sky-high 19/20 odds.
