Finn Harps - Dundalk

Asian Handicap
Pick: Finn Harps +0.25
Odds: 1.87
Stake: 1

Match date: 01/10/2021

Both teams play to avoid relegation playoff place, this is the fifth time that they meet in the season, three ones in league and another two ones in Cup.

Dundalk handicapped by an hard run, this will be the fifth match in 14 days, including the return leg in FAI Cup against Finn won in extra-times.

After that, two wins in league, both at home and against teams in high half of table, Sligo and Bohs.

But the team is near the end of energies, with various players - second scorer McMillan ( 4g), Zahibo ( midf.6+6), McEneley ( midf.16+4 2g) and Gartland ( def.1) - out and more ones not in the best conditions and that will be checked to see if they are exhausted and needs rest as said by trainer:

"We’re waiting on one or two players to come back and we’re trying to be careful with players as well.

"An example of that is Raivis Jurkovskis ( def.23+2), who would have started his ninth game in 27 days if we selected him against Bohemians. Physically, something has to give there so we need to protect people"

Finn with whole week free after the win against Bohs. With adventure in FA Cup ended they can improve their stats in second half of season in league, with only one defeat ( before important cup match) and one draw in last seven.

Only sure miss for hosts is striker O'Sullivan ( 21+4 2g), while Boyle ( def.23+2 2g) and rotation players as Rainey ( midf.8+6 3g), Boyd ( att.5+16 1g), Hawkins ( midf.3+1 1g) are doubtful.

Hosts played two times recently against Dundalk and weren't able to win in cup, but, except the two last wins, Dundalk is by far in worst form in league with no other wins after summer pause in July and now surely not in the best conditions as tiredness. More, with two points of advantage on the opponent, also a draw could be welcomed by home team

HALF WIN Score: 2:2 Profit: +0.44
