Two teams in the bottom half of the Ireland Premier table will meet on Friday when Drogheda United host Bohemians at United Park.
Despite the fact they have both been in mixed form throughout the campaign, they each head into this one with a victory in their most recent league encounter, which will be providing plenty of momentum for them.
Drogheda United currently find themselves just above the relegation zone right now, but due to their recent performances, they have been able to extend that gap.
There is now 13 points between them and Finn Harps, which has provided a little bit of breathing room for the Drogs, which is something that they will be hoping to continue.
Despite being further down the table, Kevin Doherty’s men have only lost once in their previous seven matches, and they rebounded from that defeat immediately with their most recent performance.
Drogheda United defeated Dundalk 1-0 in their previous match, which was an impressive effort against the team in second place right now as Dean Williams scored in the first minute to secure the result.
At home the Drogs have only lost three times, showcasing a lot more consistency in front of their own fans, which is something that should help their confidence for this one.
Williams got on the scoresheet the last time these two teams met earlier on this season, but it was a game that saw them share the points with a 1-1 draw as Jordan Flores scored for Bohemians.
The visitors might be higher in the league table than Drogheda, but their recent form as has not been quite as consistent which has allowed the hosts to close the gap in the table.
A defeat on Friday would lead to just a single point separating them, but Bohemians should take some confidence from the fact they picked up three points in their most recent league encounter.
Despite falling behind against University College Dublin, they were able to respond well with goals from Flores, Liam Burt, and Dawson Devey to secure a 3-1 win.
After a lengthy break the squad were kept on their toes with a friendly against Union Berlin, and even though they lost that game 2-1, it will have ensured the team stayed fit.

Drogheda United might be lower in the table, and technically head into the game as the underdogs, but they should have enough quality and momentum behind them to win this one.
Bohemians have been hit and miss recently, and that is something that could cause them issues in this particular contest against a team in good form overall.
