Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
St. Patricks and Derry City take on each other in a highly-anticipated Premier Division clash at Richmond Park. The Saints were on a three-game winning run in June, but they head into Friday’s clash following a 3-2 loss at Bohemians. Since both Lee Desmond and Ian Bermingham are banned for the match, home win should not be considered. Derry City, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Waterford.
The Red and White Army are determined to regain their spot in top four, but beating St. Patricks in Dublin is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Richmond Park, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. Scotland international Joseph Thomson should keep his place in Derry City’s starting XI after finding the net in the triumph over the Blues.
