St Patrick’s Athletic vs Dundalk Match Analysis and Prediction

Dundalk will be looking to keep themselves in the Ireland Premier title race on Friday when they make a trip to Richmond Park to take on St Patrick’s Athletic.

Meanwhile, the hosts have a chance to close the gap on their opponents as their is only six points separating them in the table.

Following two consecutive matches without a win, St Patrick’s Athletic managed to turn their fortunes at the weekend during their most recent game against Drogheda United.

Goals from Billy King, Eoin Doyle and Mark Doyle proved enough to secure the result, which left Tim Clancy’s side in contention for a top-three finish this season.

St Patrick’s Athletic are currently sitting fourth in the table, but there is just five points between them and Derry City, which is a gap they will be looking to reduce this week.

The Saints have not played since July 1, which should have provided them with plenty of time in order to recover and get themselves prepared for this contest.

They will be aware of the fact that when they last met Dundalk, they suffered a 1-0 defeat as Daniel Kelly scored the only goal of the game in the first half.

Meanwhile, Dundalk will be looking to immediately rebound on Friday after their 11-game unbeaten streak was ended in their most recent match against Drogheda United.

Dundalk had previously been on a spectacular run, which was made even more impressive by the fact that they kept five clean sheets in the six matches that led up to their recent defeat. Only league leaders Shamrock Rovers have conceded fewer goals than them this season.

There is a 10-point difference between the two sides in the table, but with Dundalk boasting a game in hand, they will still believe they have what it takes to close the gap.
