It’s the same old story for Cork City with their problems on the road continuing.

The only goal they have scored away from home this season was a disputed penalty in a fortunate 0-1 win at Dundalk. Elsewhere they lost 1-0 at Derry City and drew 0-0 with bottom of the table Sligo Rovers.

Compare that to Dundalk who have collected the maximum twelve points and scored thirteen goals and you can see why John Caulfield needs to emulate their home form on their travels. Their home form is (well, was) imperious and if they could only match it away from home they would have a real chance.

Can you really fancy their chances against a Galway Utd side who are the last remaining team yet to concede on their home patch? Three clean sheets and three wins have helped them amass enough points to remain two clear of the visitors to Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday night.

Tommy Dunne has his side playing well, if not spectacularly, and if you include their League Cup victory they have won four out of four at home scoring nine goals. Cork will be the biggest test they have faced so far but they shouldn’t be discounted from having a big say in the outcome of this match.

Cork City are steadily reaching a point where their games are becoming must win if they are to keep title hopes alive. If they lose this one they could be eight points adrift already and to be honest it’s a wonder it isn’t even more.

That’s a big disappointment for The Rebels who showed so much early promise and the effect is telling with the fans. At least the head to head stats offer some solace with Cork winning all three of the head to head matches last season.

Galway Utd v Cork City Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Despite their troubles Cork are still odds on favourites at a best 1.75 (3/4) with Paddy Power and that’s probably fair enough. Galway can be backed as high as 6.1 (51/10) with Marathon Bet who are also best price for the draw at 3.65 (45/17).

Both teams to score has a chance at a decent price of 2.15 (23/20) with Coral and Betfair. Goals backers can get as high 2.34 (39/29) on +2.5 goals from Marathon Bet. Backing Galway to score +0.5 team goals is very tempting at 1.8 (4/5) with Betfair but bear in mind that Cork have only conceded twice this season.
