Our Top Picks From Tonight's League Of Ireland Games
Bohemians v Cork CityBoth sides will be desperate for a win for different reasons tonight at Dalymout Park as Cork City are looking to wrap up the title and Bohs looking to secure their place in the division. If Galway fail to beat St Pats tonight it may not matter but they'll want to seal their fate on their own terms.
Cork have stuggled for goals since the departure of Seání Maguire to Preston, scoring 7 league goals in 8 games and they lost to tonight's opponents at home two games into life without the league's top scorer. Bohs carry a vey real goal threat with striker Dinny Corcoran currently on 15 goals for the season. On the flip side, they've also failed to score in 12 league games this season. Should the Cork performance be anywhere near the level of that against Dundalk over 2 weeks ago, then we could well see them securing the title this evening.
- Bohs have failed to score in 40% of their league games this season
- Cork have scored 7 in their last 8 leagues games
- 5 out of their last 8 league games have seen Under 2.5 Goals
Dundalk v Bray WanderersDundalk will be looking to keep the pressure on Cork City and should Cork slip up, then a win for the home side could make things a little more interesting. They are unbeaten in the league in 7 games and face a Bray side who have leaked goals all season.
- Dundalk have scored 20 goals in their last 7 league games
- 70% of Bray's games have seen Over 2.5 Goals
Galway United v St PatsA crucial game in the relegation battle as Galway host St Pats. Galway are under pressure to get something as the games are running out for them to get into the safety zone. They picked up two vital wins at home to Derry & Sligo and managed to salvage a point in their last game away to Bray with an 85th minute equaliser.
- Galway's last 10 games have seen both teams score
- St Pats have scored in 8 out their last 9 games
