Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Oriel Park will host Friday’s football game between Dundalk and Derry City. The Lilywhites aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Drogheda United where they turned their dominance into goal just before the half-time break. Dundalk boss Vinny Perth is likely to the 4-5-1 formation with Patrick Hoban up front as a lone forward. The Red and Whites, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous eight league fixtures.
Derry City managed to find the net in each of their last 13 league fixtures, and seeing that Dundalk are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the Irish top flight the two sides played out a 1-1 draw, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Defender Eoin Toal is likely to miss the game through injury for the visiting team.
