  • Waterford scored 30% of goals during 0-15th minutes of the matches, which is the best percentage in the league. Still, its 5% of goals between the 76th and the 90th minutes of the confrontations is the worst in the entire Premier Division.

Waterford – the shape of the team and its analysis: there is a strong end of spring

“The Blues” often migrate to the League One and back. They were in 2nd place in 2023 there, but won the play-offs. And they began to take points in the Premier Division, especially at the home arena, immediately from the start of the draw. The team started a series of victories, rising higher and higher in the table, in May. Still, then there was Shelburne with its winning streak. And the opponent extended it, winning on the native field thanks to Boyd’s only goal in the 72nd minute of the game.

Drogheda – the shape of the team and its analysis: the club is trying to improve its performance, but it turns out mostly at the home arena

“The Drogs” won the home battles against Bohemians, Sligo Rovers and, most recently, Dundalk. Still, there are plenty of misfires and failures even there. The team at least finally didn’t lose on the away field, having drawn (1-1) in the last but one match on the field of Shelburne. There were hopes of success in the struggle with Galway too, but, leading with a 2-1 score in the 90th minute of the game, the team managed to lose.
