UCD have lost their last eight league matches and have also lost all eight away games this year with form seeing them sit bottom of the table. Waterford have failed to win any of their last three at home having won the three before that but this presents a great chance to get back to winning ways.
Shamrock have won 11 of their last 14 games with five wins from their last six at home. They now host Cork who look to have put their poor away form behind them, ending their four-match losing streak with wins in their last two but this will be more difficult against a team that usually start well.
St. Patrick's are unbeaten in their last three matches but face a tough task to extend that run as they travel to top-of-the-table Dundalk. The home side are unbeaten in their last nine matches with eight wins coming in that run whilst they are unbeaten at home this season and should win this one.
Derry have failed to win any of their last five matches but host Finn Harps here in what represents a great chance to end that winless run. The away side have picked up just three points on the road this season but with both teams lacking confidence, goals might be hard to come by.
Bohemians are in a poor run of form with no wins in their last four matches and they have also failed to win any of their last three at home. They now host a Sligo side that are unbeaten in their last six matches and whilst four of those have been draws, they are proving difficult to beat.
These two teams played out a 1-1 draw just ten days ago and they sit next to each other in the Premier Division in fourth and fifth. St. Pats have drawn their last three matches and at home, they will be confident of getting a positive result although this could easily be another stalemate.
UCD have now lost their last seven matches in a row and they have only scored one goal during that time as they have dropped to the bottom of the table. Cork were beaten by leaders Dundalk on Friday but they are playing relatively well at the moment and should pick up three points here.
Shamrock Rovers got back to winning ways on Friday night although they were far from their best as they edged past UCD by a solitary goal. They have already beaten Finn Harps twice this season but they may find it difficult to break the hosts down in what could be a low-scoring affair.
Dundalk are in fine form right now having risen to the top of the table thanks to a run of seven wins and a draw in their last eight. Two of those victories have come against Bohemians in which they have kept a clean sheet in each of those matches, and that trend could continue on home turf.
Derry have been entertaining to watch on the road this season and are unbeaten in their last seven away games. Four of their last five away games have seen over 3.5 goals and after Sligo were involved in a six-goal thriller last time out, more goals could be on the cards in this match.
Bohemians will be looking to bounce back after they lost their last two home games whilst failing to score in either. They have been more productive on the road this season, winning four of their last five and will fancy their chances against St Patrick's who have gone three games without a win.
Finn Harps' long wait for a Premier Division win finally came to an end as they won their first match of the season last time out. They now host a Waterford side that are in decent form having lost just one of their last seven matches and whilst they should win, this could be a high scoring game.
UCD have now lost six consecutive games and have not scored in their last four as their struggles continue. They now host an out-of-sorts Shamrock side who have lost three of their last four having won their previous eight matches but they should be able to get back to winning ways comfortably here.
Cork have not lost any of their last four home league matches but that unbeaten run will face a tough examination against Dundalk. The away side are on a fine run of form which has seen them rise to the top of the table and with three consecutive away wins, they can extend that run to four here.
