St Patricks Athletic vs Cork City Match Preview
St Patricks sit just five points behind the Premier Division top 3 and they only saw a three-match unbeaten streak ended in a narrow los at Dundalk (1-0), where a last-minute goal from Sean Hoare made all the difference as the rivals kept hold of the top spot.
Pats held Derry City (1-1) to a draw on the road and build on the success with a draw against Bohemians (1-1) as well as a home win over Candystripes (1-0) earlier, which promises them now in a great mood despite a late winner conceded at Oriel Park last week.
Cork City have, on the other hand, seen their woes on the road prove costly again as they travel to Dublin with two consecutive losses behind them. They’ve seen Shamrock Rovers (2-0) and Bohemians (2-0 in League Cup) capitalize on their inability to find the net, which makes finding cure a must for John Cotter.
Indeed, Rebel Army have seen a very underwhelming campaign so far and can only be happy a top 3 spot still seems within reach with a long way to go. They sit nine points behind Bohemians with four sides between them and finding consistency on the road will play a great part in making it up.
We don’t see them ending the unwanted streak with a win just yet, though, and we’ll now stick our necks out for St Patricks to hold them to a Draw – which comes at 11/5 with William Hill and looks like more than a lively longshot.
We’ve seen Pats keep it together at the back and concede just three goals in four outings since early May, which has us hoping for another narrow occasion and going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 3/5 with bet365 as a somewhat safer approach to the fixture.
