Waterford vs Bohemians
Irish Premier Division
Date: Friday, 6 July 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Waterford Regional Sports Centre.
The league newcomers took advantage of the easier schedule to pick up seven out of nine possible points in past three rounds and firm their third place in the Premier Division ladder.
Can they back up the 2-3 win over Sligo Rovers and keep the good run going on Friday when Bohemians come to visit Waterford Regional Sports Centre on Friday evening?
The visitors ended the three-loss streak with a narrow 1-0 victory over At. Patrick’s Athl. seven days ago.
The lone goal came through Kevin Devaney, but it was by no means a dominant display from the side led by Keith Long as their counterparts were in control pretty much throughout the entire affair.
Waterford vs Bohemians: Head-to-head
Waterford trail by three wins in the H2H stats with Bohemians.
Nevertheless, the Blues did win both of this term’s clashes against the Bohs, 1-0 on both occasions.
Prior to these two ties, the two teams last played each other back in 2009 when the Bohs took a 1-3 victory in the League Cup contest.
Waterford vs Bohemians Prediction
Alan Reynolds’ men head into this off the back of quite impressive consecutive wins in matches in their own backyard. They dispatched Derry City and St. Patrick’s Athl. with a 6-0 goal difference in total and we find them as pretty clear favourites to keep such streak alive against an outfit they’ve already defeated twice this year.
Bohemians can be a tough opposition to any team in the league on their day, but we doubt they’0ll be a match to the in-form Waterford side here. The home win looks decent at 1.72, while you can alternatively try with the hosts to keep a clean sheet, something they’ve done on both occasions in matches against the Bohs this term. The odds for such scenario are set at 2.20.
