Since our last set of predictions, there has been a huge change at the foot of the table as U.C.D. have picked up four points in games between Derry City and Bohemians respective, hauling themselves off the foot of the table and three points clear of Finn Harps.

In a further boost, U.C.D.’s 1-0 win over Bohemians has been converted to a 3-0 win in the students favor when it was discovered that the Bohs had played an ineligible player. With things so tight at the bottom this boost to U.C.D.’s goal difference could make all the difference come the end of the season.

With just three matches last week and two shock results it was a low scoring week last week for our panel with no dramatic changes to the leaderboard, which you can see below:-

1: Darren 74
2: Cameron 70
3: Bryan 65
4: Rodney/Liam 63
6: Keith O’D 58
7: Adrian 47

 

This week there are four fixtures taking place, one of the more intriguing fixtures takes place tonight when Waterford welcome Finn Harps to the Regional Sports Centre. Waterford need to start getting some wins on the board before they find themselves getting sucked closer to the bottom two and Finn Harps have a chance to move level on points with U.C.D., at least until they play on Sunday.

The full fixture list for this week is as follows, all games kick off tonight at 19:45 unless otherwise stated:-

Derry City v Sligo Rovers

Waterford v Finn Harps (tonight at 20:00)

Bohemians v St. Patrick’s Athletic (Sunday at 15:00)

Shamrock Rovers v U.C.D. (Sunday at 16:00)
