The game between Drogheda and FinnHarps is one of the most important in the relegation battle this season. The two clubs are in a terrible position, as they currently perform very bad, and the results are not satisfying for the fans and the management.
The home team in this encounter just has to win, because they have one point less comparing to their opponents who are just one place outside the relegation zone.
What is critical is the fact that Finn Harps have one game fewer than Drogheda and that is something that can come out to be decisive at the end of the championship.
The Drogs are the worst team in the last couple of months in the league. In 10 straight games, they couldn’t win at least once. Their record is 5 draws and 5 losses, with a disastrous goal difference of 4:22. At the moment, Drogheda is coming into this match after 3 straight defeats in which they conceded 12 goals and netted only once. Things aren’t bright when looking the home record, also. In 4 matches in a row, the hosts couldn’t score. Therefore, the attack is horrifying.
The record in previous 10 games at United Park is one win, 4 draws and 5 losses.
The Blue and White Army are slightly better than their respective opponents. But, when looking overall, they too are awful. They had a brief period of good performances, with 2 wins and one draw. But before that, they had 6 defeats in a row, and now they have 2. The interesting thing is the fact that Finn Harps only scored once in those 8 losses. In the previous 11 games, they netted only in three games. On the other hand, on 10 occasions they conceded. Total goal difference 7:23.
If we take a look at the away record, we will see 4 defeats and one draw in the last 5 matches, goal difference 1:13.

Drogheda United vs Finn Harps Prediction
We are going to rely on the tradition here. Only because of this, we are backing up the hosts in this match. But we have to add that Drogheda’s win isn’t the safest choice. Bothe teams not to score is something that we think is almost certain. It is evident that both teams have a lousy attack and that they tend to fall when the opponents score, It is why we recommend this game as the first option.
