After returning to competitive action with a 1-1 draw against second-placed Dundalk, St. Patrick's will target their third win of 2020. They host a Derry City side comfortably swept aside by Sligo Rovers on July 31 and need a confidence boost.

Will that happen here? Only time will tell. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

St. Patrick's vs Derry City Betting Tips

St. Patrick boss Stephen O'Donnell was said to be delighted with his side's display in their return fixture after a near five-month hiatus.

As quoted by the club's website, he said: “It was up to us to create our own atmosphere, intensity and energy on the pitch – I thought we did that very well. They showed great application and attitude, overall I was delighted.”

However, he followed that praise up by admitting that you're always left wanting more and a victory would be a welcome way to kick off the new week.

Dundalk loanee forward Georgie Kelly is available again after being ineligible for selection due to terms of his loan agreement. The 23-year-old could be poised to make his first appearance for the Saints here, with O'Donnell prepared to tinker a few things.

However, they face a motivated opponent in the form of Derry City. Still reeling after a 2-0 defeat by Sligo Rovers, Declan Devine's men haven't started the campaign in good form.

Here presents them an opportunity to earn only their second competitive win of 2020. If they needed any added motivation, their 2-0 win over third-placed Bohemian on February 28 reiterates they're capable of beating better sides.

St. Patrick's vs Derry City Correct Score Predictions

Form is a difficult outlier to judge given Irish football has only just returned, but St. Patrick's are better on paper and I expect them to emerge victorious here too. H2H meetings between the two sides suggest a low-scoring affair, but Monday's hosts will expect a win regardless of the scoreline.
