*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The Stephen Kenny era at St Patrick’s Athletic got off to an inauspicious start on Monday when Pats were beaten at home by derby rivals Shelbourne, and though the ex-Republic of Ireland boss will be targeting improvement on Friday, a better result at Bohs might be tough to produce.

St Pats are 17/10 underdogs ahead of their short trip across Dublin to Dalymount Park and the visitors have gone eight away games without tasting victory. Bohemians meanwhile, climbed up to 5th after a convincing 3-0 win at Sligo Rovers last time out and the bookies have given them a 41.7% chance of winning again on Friday. Our top betting tips have also backed the hosts to succeed.

Bohemians eked out a 1-0 win over rivals St Patrick’s Athletic in February, however, Pats came out on top in three of the clubs’ previous four encounters before that.

Bohemians preview: Bohs still without injured trio

Rob Cornwall, Keith Buckley and Brian McManus are listed as injured for Bohemians. Head Coach Alan Reynolds could stick with the same XI that produced an emphatic 3-0 win at Sligo last time out.

Bohemians vs St Patrick's Athletic prediction
Supporters at Dalymount Park are expecting big things from Dayle Rooney – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Dayle Rooney

Dayle Rooney was the star of the show for Bohemians in their excellent 3-0 win over Sligo Rovers last week. The 24-year-old scored one and made the other two of Bohs’ goals in their comfortable victory in what was arguably one of his best overall performances in a Gypsies shirt.

Rooney should be brimming with confidence

Following his haul of three goal contributions in one sitting, Rooney should have a real kick in his step on Friday evening and the in-form attacker could provide a menacing presence for Bohs in their Dublin Derby against St. Patrick’s Athletic on Friday evening.
