Waterford vs Dundalk
Republic of Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 12 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Waterford Regional Sports Centre.
In the 34th round of the Irish Premier Division, Waterford are going to take on Dundalk on Friday evening.
The hosts have been promoted at the beginning of the season, and they are enjoying a very successful campaign.
Waterford are fighting for the top three and the place in Europa League qualifiers next season. They have the same number of points as Shamrock Rovers and it is going to be a super-exciting race.
Alan Reynolds’ side is in an excellent form, they’ve celebrated four times in the last five rounds, and however this match is going to be their toughest challenge as the upcoming champions are coming to town.
Dundalk have been the most consistent side in this edition of the Premier Division and they are going to be rewarded with a trophy for the best team in the country. They are 12 points ahead of their closest rivals and the visitors secured the title three rounds before the end of the season.
They’ve been the best side according to all parameters, Pat Hoban and the lads have been lethal for the oppositions’ goalkeepers, while their defence is the tightest in the league.
Although this match doesn’t have any special importance for the visitors, they should come out to do a professional job.
