Having snapped a two-game losing streak away at Sligo Rovers last week, title challengers Bohemian look to continue their forward momentum against Derry City.

Their upcoming visitors have just one league win in their last five. While both share the pain of crashing out in Europa League qualifiers last month, they find themselves in contrasting positions one-third of the way through the campaign.

Derry are overwhelmingly superior in their historical H2H (eleven wins, four draws, three defeats), though that record has become more competitive recently.

How will they fare this weekend, knowing they can further dent the hosts' title ambitions here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Bohemian vs Derry City Betting Tips

With victory here, Bohemian will have double Derry's points tally (13 pts, played 11 games) while closing the gap on league leaders Shamrock Rovers. After crashing out of the Europa League with a credible 2-0 home defeat by Italian giants Milan last week, Rovers returned with a 6-1 thrashing of fourth-placed Waterford four days later.

The phrase they mean business cannot be overexaggerated at this point. Bohemian suffered back-to-back defeats against Rovers and Waterford earlier this month, pouring cold water on their desire to improve upon last season's third-placed finish.

However as defending champions Dundalk proved, there's ample time and matches left to play this season.

At this stage of the campaign though, they mean even more to those sides battling for fine margins near the top – like Bohemian find themselves right now.

They had West Brom academy graduate Andre Wright to thank for saving their blushes last time out, with an 80th-minute matchwinner on September 18. Derry by contrast, have recorded successive goalless draws against Finn Harps and St. Patrick's in league play this month. Which way will this swing?

Bohemian vs Derry City Correct Score Predictions

Bohemian cannot afford to drop points, with Dundalk breathing down their necks (played two games fewer, on 17 pts). I'm backing them as narrow winners against an unpredictable Derry side as close to the bottom as they are to the European places right now.
