Limerick vs Cork City
Ireland Premier Division
Date: September, 22nd September 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Markets Field, Garryowen (Limerick).
Cork City resume their Premier Division campaign after two weeks break. They will travel to Limerick, a team fighting to steer away from relegation waters.
Cork were beaten 1-3 by Shamrock Rovers in the first week of September. This is their third in the space of 5 games, which had now made the wait longer to be officially confirmed as Irish champions. Yet, John Caulfield’s men need 5 points from remaining 6 games, which means they are clearly in the driving seat.
Limerick are 7th in the league, but the relegation threat is clouding over them as they are separated from the bottom three by the virtue of 2 points.
The Super Blues are coming in the back of some terrible form. They managed just 1 win from the last 8, drew 2 and lost 5. On top of this, they have a poor account of themselves at home with a meagre 4 wins coming from their 14 games so far.
Limerick vs Cork City: Head-to-head
Cork City won 9 of their last 10 meetings with Limerick, while losing the other. Five of those came in away trips to the Markets Field.
Also, Limerick failed to score in four consecutive home matches against Cork.
Limerick vs Cork City: Prediction
Cork City haven’t been at their very best in recent weeks. But they are in a comfortable position to clinch the title and therefore they could play without litlle pressure. Meantime, the situation is totally opposite at Limerick as every point from now on is a priceless addition is surviving the drop from Ireland’s top flight.
Judging by the home team’s recent form and their h2h record, they have little chance to topple Cork City here.
