Derry City vs Galway by Hassy
Despite playing four more league games than league leaders Dundalk, Derry City still retain slim hopes of a league title success. A win for the home side tonight could see them take the lead in the League of Ireland Premier Division. This means that they should be bang up for the game tonight which sees them face a Galway side that have lost their last three games, and have only scored more than once in two of their last 13 league matches. After finishing seventh last season the hosts seem to have hit form at just the right time, and their midweek win at Shamrock Rovers gave them a five-point cushion in the battle for the top three and one of the european qualification places. The midweek win saw them extend their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions and to eight matches in the Premier Division. Four of these eight league games have been victories, so you can see why we have confidence in the pick. In addition to this they boast a solid home record this season with only two defeats at home in the league all season. They have also managed to keep four clean sheets in their last four home games too.
After doing well to survive relegation last season Galway are one point shy of their total points tally of last season and still have ten games to play. However, since an impressive and surprising win over title favourites Dundalk a month ago they have not garnered a single point from three games. Three straight defeats and winless in their last seven outings on their travels points to a major slump in form for the visitors. Previously, these two sides have played the twice this season, with Galway losing 2-1 away and playing out a goalless draw at home.
A combination of Derry's need of a win, Galway's woeful current form and the odds of evens makes this tip higher valuable. I don't expect Galway to be hammered but I think the hosts will do enough to secure the three points and get us off to a winning start for the month.
