The League of Ireland Premier clash between Bohemians and Derry City is set to be a thrilling encounter.

As the two teams prepare to face off at Dalymount Park on Thursday, fans and analysts alike are eager to see how this pivotal match will unfold. Here’s a detailed look at the teams' forms, news, predicted lineups, and the potential outcome.

Current Form

Bohemians

Bohemians have been struggling recently, securing just one victory in their last seven league matches.

Their last outing ended in a 2-1 defeat against Waterford, leaving them in seventh place and precariously close to the relegation playoff spot.

Their home form has also been disappointing, with only 12 points from nine matches.

Derry City

Derry City, on the other hand, have shown a resurgence after a shaky end to May.

They have recorded convincing home wins against Waterford and Galway United, pushing them within striking distance of the league leaders, Shelbourne.

However, Derry’s away form has been less impressive, with only two wins from ten away games this season.

Team News

Bohemians

Bohemians will be without several key players. Brian McManus remains sidelined due to an ankle injury, and Robert Cornwall is out for the season with a cruciate ligament injury.

Additionally, Keith Buckley has been out for the entirety of 2024 with a significant ligament injury.

Derry City

Derry City will also miss some crucial players.

Centre-back Colm Whelan is yet to feature this season due to a knee injury, and winger Sam Todd is out with a heel injury.

Despite these setbacks, Derry has managed to maintain solid defensive performances recently.
