Best Tip: Derry to win

As the stadium fills and the Derry players ready themselves for this clash, the bookies are predicting success for them. The odds and our pre-match statistics below point in that direction too, as does the historical head-to-head (H2H) record we factor into our predictive algorithms. The Brandywell Stadium hasn't been an easy place to go for Dundalk in the past, and we we'd back more of the same on Friday evening. A win / draw / win home win is our tip.
