    Bohemians set for a victory over Finn Harps
    1121

    On Friday night, Bohemians host Finn Harps at Dalymount Park, as the visitors attempt to move off the bottom of the Irish Premier League table.

    Bohemians are third place in the table but are 12 points behind perennial title challengers Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers.

    One factor in the big gap is that Bohemians have been in poor form of late after a stellar start to their league campaign. In fact, the home side has now failed to win in five games, suffering four defeats in the process. Last time out in the Irish top-flight, they suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Sligo Rovers.

    The Sligo defeat saw the home side concede at least two goals for the third time in their last four league outings.

    Bohemians home form in the Irish top-flight has been part of the problem of late, as they have failed to win in four home matches, suffering three defeats in the process, including in their last three league games on home soil. A lack of goals has not helped their cause at home, as they have scored just once in four home league games.

    Finn Harps are rock bottom in the Irish Premier League, having taken just ten points from their first 19 matches in the Irish top-flight.

    The visitor's recent form in the league has been inconsistent. However, they have lost their last two league games, while winning just two of their last 25 Premier League outings. A leaky defence has been the main cause of their recent poor form, as they have conceded at least twice in their last three league games.

    Unsurprisingly considering their league position, Ollie Horgan’s side has struggled for results away from home in the Irish top-flight, failing to win in 12 matches, having suffered nine defeats in the process.

    Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a low-scoring clash to maintain their position in the Premier League table.
