Bray may not stand in the way of surging Bohemians

Wanderers could be too open in League of Ireland clash

Bohemians can continue their push up the League of Ireland table by winning at struggling Bray.

Bohs have been the best-backed team of this series of matches but still make some appeal at odds-against.

Their performances have been excellent of late but they have struggled to score goals and have not gained the results they have deserved.

Dan Grant's double in Sligo earned them three much-needed points last weekend, while Bray look open at the back and are missing Aaron Greene.

Bohs ought to have the upper hand with Dylan Watts running the show in midfield.

This is a tricky round of fixtures with the highlight perhaps being Derry City's game against Cork.

This ought to be pretty close and Derry could cause the visitors problems at Brandywell, where their form has been excellent. Cork are top, although their performances have hardly been brilliant.

Shamrock Rovers' Graham Burke has been drafted into the Irish squad and he will be fancied to cause Waterford problems in Tallaght, although Rovers look on the short side.

The Blues' strike force of Izzy Akinade and Courtney Duffus should cause problems for the Hoops and Waterford could consign Rovers to an eighth defeat of the season.

Galway should probably be a bit shorter at home to UCD in Division One, even though they have failed to beat any of the legitimate promotion candidates.

They have lots of threats going forward and, although College are top of the table, Galway should be able to narrow the gap.

Finn Harps, who have been pretty poor this season, gained vital victories over Drogheda, Longford and Galway in recent weeks, even though they were arguably fortunate to win all three.

With confidence on the rise, they could win again against Shelbourne.
