    Finn Harps survival chance to take a low at Waterford

    Finn Harps have experienced a poor campaign in the Irish Premier Division. However, on Friday night they have the opportunity to improve their survival chances when they visit eighth-place Waterford.

    The visitors are currently rock bottom of the Irish top-flight table, having picked up a measly 14 points from their 25 league outings this season. However, all is not yet lost, as Ollie Horgan’s side could move level with ninth-place UCD with a victory in this clash.

    The problem is that they have struggled for wins of late in the Irish top-flight, winning just once in eight games, while suffering six defeats in the process. Unfortunately for the visitors, last time out they suffered a 1-0 defeat at relegation rivals UCD.

    The defeat was their fourth straight away defeat in the Irish top-flight. The visitors have a terrible recent away record in the league, having failed to win in 15 matches on their travels spanning two spells.

    Waterford are currently in the limbo of eighth-place in the Irish Premier Division, ten points clear of the visitors, having played three fewer games than the strugglers.

    A recent poor spell of form in the league, including a four-game winless run, has hampered the home sides chances of finishing in the European spots this season. Despite their recent poor spell, Waterford still look unlikely to be dragged into the fight for survival.

    A poor run of form on home soil has not helped Waterford’s chances of moving up the table, as they have won just once in their last six league outings.

    Poor defensive performances have had a big hand in Waterford’s poor recent home form, as they have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six outings.

    Forebet predicts that Waterford will end their recent winless run by recording a victory in a low-scoring clash to dent Finn Harps survival chances.
