Bray Wanderers v Sligo RoversBray are rooted to the bottom of the table with just 1 point from 4 games and have scored just 1 goal. The gap could be even worse come Monday night should they lose again. The visitors lost at home to Waterford on Friday night but one positive for them right now is the goalscoring form of Adam Morgan who netted his 3rd goal in as many games. With his obvious goal threat, Sligo could be good value to come away from this with at least a draw.
Betting Prediction: Both Teams To Score @ 3/4 / BTTS & Over 2.5 goals @ 11/8 / Sligo Rovers Double Chance @ 4/7
Derry City v LimerickDerry were trounced 6-1 at Shamrock Rovers on Friday and will be desperate to start off well at the revamped Brandywell. They've already conceded 10 goals and face a Limerick side with 2 wins under their belt already. These 2 wins for Limerick came against sides who'll be looking to avoid the drop so thay've made a decent start (putting aside that 8-0 drubbing to Dundalk). Limerick will be delighted with a point from this one and will be happy to keep Derry frustrated for as long as possible.
Betting Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals @ 4/5 / Limerick Double Chance 17/20
St Pats v DundalkPats got a big win on Friday by beating Bohs at Dalymount Park to give them their 2nd win of the season. They come up against a mean Dundalk defence here who have yet to concede a goal and are fresh from beating champions Cork to send out a message in the the title race. Patrick Hoban had a find game on Friday and will be a key man again. Following Friday's result, you'd have to fancy Dundalk to win this one.
Betting Prediction: Dundalk To Win @ 3/4 / Dundalk -1 Asian Handicap @ 11/8 / Dundalk To Win To Nil @ 9/5
Waterford v Bohemians
Betting Prediction: Waterford Win @ 5/4 / Waterford To Score 2+ Goals @ 13/10
Waterford sit in 2nd place with 3 wins out of 4, their defeat coming away to champions Cork, so it's been an amazing start for them. They've looked competitive in all areas of the pitch with goal threats from young talents Holohan & Duffus. Bohs have been disappointing since their opening day victory over Shamrock Rovers. They've failed to score in their last 2 games and could face another disappointing night away to a confident Blues side.
