Waterford vs St Patricks Preview and Predictions

Waterford vs St Patricks Irish Premier Division 8th June 2018 by LeagueLane

Waterford vs St Patrick’s Athletic
Irish Premier Division
Date: Friday, 8th June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Waterford Regional Sports Centre, Waterford.

Waterford got off to a dream start to the campaign in the Premier Division, but they are starting to feel the strength of a higher division football as the season moves on. The Blues lost ground entirely to Cork City and Dundalk at top two positions after a streak of three defeats in last four league rounds. Can they arrest such slump in form on Friday evening when St. Patrick’s Athl. come to visit Waterford Regional Sports Centre?

The match should provide a decent opportunity for Alan Reynolds and his men to return on the winning ways knowing that the visitors will head into it in low spirits. The Pats lost three on the bounce in the league conceding as many as nine goals along the way. Especially painful was the loss that came seven days ago when Liam Buckley’s men fell 3-1 to the rock-bottomed Bray Wanderers.

Waterford vs St Patrick’s Athletic Head-to-head

  • Teams snatched a win each (on home courts) in this term of Premier Division.
  • Before this year’s encounters, it’s been seven years since these two likes have last locked horns, and back then they were battling it out in the FA Cup.
  • None of last four head to head meetings saw both teams on the scoreline.

Waterford vs St Patrick’s Athletic Predictions

Waterford’s form may have seen plenty of stumbling blocks so far in the season, but nobody can deny their decent set of results in matches in their own backyard. The Blues won ten, drew one and lost one of last 12 matches on the home pitch in all competitions and we have to see them as favourites against an outfit which lost three on the bounce heading into this clash.

Waterford were pretty efficient in the final third in home matches so far in the season and we expect them to continue in such fashion against the Saints who allowed three goals in each of last three league fixtures. You can have the home win at 2.05, while the Blues are 2.00 to score two or more goals in the game.
