We’re counting down to LOI Premier - Playoffs action on Friday as Waterford take on UCD.
For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Waterford v UCD, scroll down (inc. the best betting odds).
Waterford head into this fixture coming off the back of a 0-0 Premier Division drawn match against St. Patrick's Athletic.
It has been all too rare in recent games where Waterford haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Waterford have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 8 goals in the process.
UCD will come into the clash after a 0-2 League win with the defeat of Bray Wanderers in their last match.
Over the course of their previous half-dozen outings, UCD have amassed a total of 10 goals. UCD have also scored in every single one of those games. During those fixtures, they have had 4 goals go against them. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, however.
Team News: Waterford
The Waterford boss Marc Bircham will be happy not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: UCD
Due to a completely healthy group to choose from, the UCD manager Andrew Myler has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
We envisage that UCD are likely to put one past this Waterford team, however it is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re predicting a 2-1 win for Waterford at the end of the 90 minutes. Looking forward to this.
