Finn Harps vs Derry City
Pick: Derry City Draw No Bet
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Derry City are unbeaten in six (W2, D4) since losing 1-2 to Finn Harps in last month’s reverse fixture.
- The hosts have lost four of their seven starts at Finn Park this term (W2, D1).
- Derry have won four of their seven away trips this season (D1, L2).
Derry to avenge last month’s defeat
Finn Harps turned over Derry City 1-2 at Brandywell Stadium in last month’s reverse fixture, but Ollie Horgan’s men may struggle to confirm that form when the sides clash at Finn Park this Friday.
That’s because Derry have since established a six match unbeaten streak (W2, D4), while they travel to County Donegal having won four of their seven away trips this season (D1, L2).
Finn Harps earned a decent 1-1 draw away to defending champions Shamrock Rovers last time out, though they’ve won just won and lost three of their last six starts overall and they’ve also lost four of their seven home games this term (W2, D1).
So based on current form and the sides’ respective home and away records, it’s the visitors who look worth siding with here in the draw no bet market, which offers the insurance of stakes returned should matters end all square.
We’re favouring City to edge out the Harps though and we could well see a straight reverse of the score-line played out between the teams in May.
