Wexford Youths are finding their feet but face their biggest test yet away to the champions.

But Dundalk have faced a peculiar test of their own at home this year. Much like all the dominant sides in European football they are facing a defensive wall every time they play in front of their own fans.

There is only so much a team can do when sides park the bus particularly when well organised. Derry City, for example, escaped with a point despite Dundalk dominating them almost entirely. If a team can frustrate Dundalk for long enough they have a small chance of taking something from the game.

It is a small chance but appears bigger than when Dundalk are on the road where they have won every game this season bar the Presidents Cup. Dundalk have covered a handicap in six of their seven away league matches and only managed it once in six at home.

So the immediate temptation to back Dundalk on the handicaps should be tempered. Especially now that Wexford Youths have begun to fulfil their pre-season promise. Last season’s First Division champions had a hard beginning to life in the League Of Ireland Premier Division.

They had to wait six games to pick up their first win and followed that up with a bout of inconsistency. An excellent point in Cork was followed by 4-0 and 4-1 beatings at Pats and Sligo. Now they have won three games in a row with a 2-0 home win over Shamrock Rovers the stand out result in that mini run.

If they can keep that kind of consistency any thoughts of relegation should be left far behind but they may have to wait another week before picking up any more points. A small rut of injuries in the Dundalk squad is clearing up with even Ciaran Kilduff getting on the scoresheet last week despite breaking his back juts five weeks ago.

Dundalk v Wexford Youths Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Dundalk are unbackable at a best price of 1.2 (1/5) with bet365. Wexford Youths can be backed at a high of 18/1 with Paddy Power and Betfair while the draw is best priced with Betvictor at 7.5 (13/2).

Both teams to score doesn’t tempt despite the odds against price of 2.15 (23/20) from Betfair and Coral. Dundalk have conceded just five goals in thirteen league matches, after all.

But none of Dundalk’s home games this season have seen +3.5 goals so the price for UNDER 3.5 goals of 1.78 (31/40) should certainly tempt. Braver punters could take a chance on UNDER 2.5 goals at a high of 2.9 (19/10) with Betvictor.
