Derry City will see them ramp up to a place in the top two of the League of Ireland Premier Division table on Friday, as they travel to fight counter-culturists.
A palm out on University College Dublin last saw the callers move within one point of Dandak, while their hosts are in sixth place after last week’s defeat.
The Counterculturists have endured a particularly mixed crusade on the Irish top flight, as they are currently sitting at the table with eight draws as well as six palms from their opening 20 games and six defeats.
With the recent heavy defeat to Sligo Rovers at the end of May, a heavy defeat to St. Patrick’s Athletics and a draw with Strugglers Drogheda United, their season has been defined by inconsistencies before Keith Long’s team returned to winning ways against Shelbourne. Devoy’s early end.
They were ineligible for that last time out, though, as their short trip with league leaders and fellow Dublin team Shamrock Rovers ended in a narrow defeat, as Rory Gaffney hit the only thing of the game right after half time.
Such a defeat left Bohos three points behind Sligo Rovers and, still changing themselves to the lowest half, they will be looking for more positive runs of form next week but will face another tough test on Friday.
Derry City has reached the break between the top two looking to make a palate last time on their hunt.
The Red and White Army enjoyed a particularly strong start to the season, putting themselves at the top of the table as they scored 31 points from the first 13 league giants.
Ruaidhari Higgins’ side have also seen a sharp change in their form, although they have failed to win any of the upcoming seven wins, picking up just four points thanks to two draws from both sides in three consecutive defeats.
As a result, they have slipped to third place behind league leader Shamrock Rovers and below Dundalk, which made last Friday’s Strugglers University College Dublin trip a major one.
Although Higgins’ men weren’t too satisfied with the basement, which has only one league palm in their name this season, Derry was fit to take three points as Will Doctrine converted an option-half penalty to seal the 1-0 palm, and, alternatively After climbing back into a point of space, they will go in search of an alternative straight victory in their periphery.
They’ve played a lot more games than Dundalk, yet, which doesn’t bode well in the long run, although Derry also has two organizations unnecessary to play in the league against Shamrock that would bring them within at least five points if they win. League leaders and subsequently potentially revive their title supporters.
The last time the two met was just less than two months ago, when Derry dominated the status board with seven more sweats on the thing and 63 off the ball.
