Free-scoring Bohemians look worth backing
Shelbourne should slaughter Wexford
It has been a modest campaign for Derry City and Waterford can kill off the hosts' hopes of catching them by taking three points from Brandywell on Friday.
Chairman Philip O’Doherty has revealed a new transfer policy at City after boss Kenny Shiels signed 17 players this season but seven of them left the club.
"There will be more rigorous medical assessments done," O'Doherty said.
Waterford's signings have been much more effective and the Blues will have no fear of going to Brandywell, facing a home side apt to capitulate if things go against them.
Waterford's away record is poor and Derry have been much better at home, but too much can be read into that.
Bohemians have taken seven points from Shamrock Rovers this season and might be a touch of value at 3-1 in the draw-no-bet market.
Bohs went through a poor spell midway through the campaign but they are scoring goals for fun and confidence will be high.
They have a superb record in the big Dublin derby under Keith Long.
Dundalk are red-hot favourites to win in Bray but bookmakers are wary of a turkey shoot, with the visitors 4-6 giving up two goals.
The bet of the weekend is Shelbourne giving up a goal to Wexford in Division One.
The Reds have splashed the cash to get promoted and Wexford are in freefall, shipping seven against Bohemians at home in the FAI Cup. Karl Moore and Paddy Kavanagh are excellent signings for Shels, who tend not to give much away.
