    Cork to dent St Patrick's slim hopes of a European spot

    On Friday night, Cork City host St Patrick’s Dublin at Turner's Cross, as the visitors look to keep alive their slim hopes of landing a European spot this season in the Irish top-flight.

    Cork are enduring a season to forget, as they are currently in the limbo of eighth place, ten points clear of the relegation zone and 19 points behind the European spots.

    City now have very little to play for except pride for the rest of the campaign. There is a slight chance of them being sucked into the relegation battle. However, that currently looks highly unlikely.

    A seven-game winless run explains their position. They have had trouble turning draws into wins, as five of those seven matches have finished all square.

    The home side has struggled for goals this season. Their top scorers in the league this season are defender Conor McCarthy and midfielder Gearoid Morrisey, who have a measly total of three goals each.

    Cork home form seems to have fallen off a cliff of late in the Irish top-flight, as they have now failed to win in four matches at Turner’s Cross. Considering St Patricks recent league form, this game could be a good one to get back on track for Cork.

    St Patrick's head into this clash on the back of three defeats in four games in the Irish top-flight. Those defeats were understandable, as they have faced top-two Shamrock and Dundalk in that four-game period.

    The club from the Irish capital’s form has been inconsistent on their travels of late. However, winning just three of their last 12 away games in the Irish top-flight has not helped their chances of clinching a top-three berth this season.

    Both sides head into this clash in unconvincing form. Therefore, Forebet predicting a low-scoring draw is not a major surprise.
