St. Patricks set for a comfortable win over Finn Harps

On Friday night, St. Patricks host struggling Finn Harps at Richmond Park, as the visitors look to move off the bottom of Ireland’s Premier Division.

St. Patricks are experiencing a mixed campaign in the Ireland Premier Division, as they currently sit fifth-place in the table, six points off the European spots. A run of just one win in their last eight league games has not helped the home sides chances of moving into the top-three.

St. Patricks have a recent habit of drawing their games in the Irish top-flight of late, drawing four of their last six matches in the league, including their last game that ended in a 1-1 draw against Finn Harps.

The home side has an inconsistent home record of late in the Irish top-flight, as they have won just once in four matches on home soil in the league. Their recent home games in Ireland Premier Division have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five home games.

Finn Harps are bottom of the Irish top-flight, with an inferior goal difference to ninth-place UCD. The visitors have suffered defeat in their last four league games, including last time out when they suffered a 3-0 home defeat against Dundalk.

A terrible recent defensive record in the league has been a big factor in their league position. In fact, they have conceded at least twice in their last five outings in the Irish top-flight.

The visitor's recent form on their travels in the top-flight has been poor, as they have failed to win in their last 13 away games in the league, suffering ten defeats in the process.

Once again a big factor in their poor recent away record is their leaky defence, as they have conceded at least two goals in six of their last away games.

Considering the visitor's recent form, it is not surprising that Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a high-scoring game.
