Player to watch: Darragh Markey

We believe that if coach King wants to get a decent result at United Park, he’d simply have to nullify in-form Markey. The former St Patrick’s Athletic star has been performing quite well with the Drogheda jersey and it goes without saying that he will be the key threat to our Drogheda vs Dundalk predictions.

Markey must be stopped

Darragh Markey may have only one goal this season, but with two assists since the start of the campaign, he’s the leading assists-provider for his manager.
