UCD vs Cork City FC by 20legend

UCD Dublin has been in a poor condition over their last three league games, as they have lost all of them and got 6-15 on goal difference. It is therefore no bombshell that they are 11th at the table with 14 points after 4-2-12 in 18 games. However, it is not far up to the mid-table teams ahead at all, but they need to straighten up defensively if they want to climb the latter. Squad wise it’s looking quite good for UC Dublin, apart from one of the important defenders, Tomas Boyle (13/0) who is out with his long term injury, who surely is missed in this terrible defensive side.


Cork City is 6th with 20 points after 5-5-7 so far this season. After a struggling period with two losses and a draw, Cork did finally win in their last game, as Drogheda suffered a 1-0 defeat. They are quite in no man’s land with their 6th place, as it is seven points up to Shamrock on 5th. When it comes to injuries, both of their defenders Dan Murray (10/0) and Danny Murray (5/0) are still out with their long term injuries, while Colin Healy (midfielder, 15/1) and Danny Morrison (striker, 12/1) must also join the sideline for this match.


There are two major, but different problems within these two teams. First of all, UC Dublin has some serious problems defensively. Having let in 46 goals in the past 18 games, they are by far the worst defensive team in the league. The second worse is Bray with 38 goals conceded. On the other hand, Cork City struggles with scoring enough goals to win matches. Having scored 17 goals in 17 games, they are among the three lowest scoring teams in the league, with only Bohemians (13 goals scored) and Shelbourne (9 goals scored) being worse. However, UC Dublin often manages to score in their games, even if they lose by big numbers. I think that we could get an open match with chances both ways here. Cork City should have all possibilities to make their score-record better here, while UC Dublin will just keep on with their attacking style, and try to let in fewer goals defensively.pin
