Key Stat: Bray Wanderers have lost eight of their last nine matches

Expert Verdict: Bray Wanderers inflicted Dundalk’s only defeat in their last 19 league matches when the sides met in April, but their recent form couldn’t contrast more sharply with the title favourites. Bray have won only once since that match and have conceded at least three goals in their last five fixtures. Expect Dundalk to inflict further misery.

Recommendation: Dundalk 3-0

Key Stat: Bohemians haven’t won a single league match at home this season

Expert Verdict: Title-chasing Cork went out of the League Cup on Monday but have conceded a league-low 14 goals this season and can keep up their good away form with a win. Bohemians are unbeaten in five but may lack sharpness having not played a competitive fixture in two weeks, while they also possess the worst home record in the division.

Recommendation: Cork

Key Stat: St Patrick’s have won only two of their ten away league matches this season

Expert Verdict: There is a chance that Europa League participants St Patrick’s could suffer from both fatigue and complacency when they take on bottom club Athlone Town, who look a big price. The hosts have turned a corner recently with three wins in four at their Lissywollen home, while Saints haven’t won in their last six away league fixtures.

Recommendation: Athlone

Key Stat: Derry have won just one of their nine away fixtures in the league this season

Expert Verdict: UCD pushed title-chasing Cork City last week despite playing with ten men for an hour, so look value to take the points against Derry City. The visitors have a Thursday night fixture in Belarus to recover from and have beaten only bottom club Athlone Town on their travels this season.

Recommendation: UCD

Key Stat: Drogheda have conceded 30 goals in ten away fixtures this season

Expert Verdict: Only the top two teams have beaten Shamrock Rovers in recent months and with a confidence-boosting League Cup win over Cork under their belt they can coast past Drogheda. The visitors have lost 12 of their last 14 league matches and have a terrible defence – their last five away fixtures have included one 7-0 and two 6-0 defeats.

Recommendation: Shamrock

Key Stat: Sligo have won only one of their last six league fixtures

Expert Verdict: Limerick slumped to a 3-0 defeat at bottom side Athlone Town in their last league outing, but a two-week break may have re-energised them and Sligo look short enough in the betting. The hosts have acquitted themselves well in Europa League qualifying but their league form has suffered and this match could be tighter than the market suggests.

Recommendation: No goalscorer
