Only one of those clean sheets have came at home and that came against the lowest scorers away from home, Waterford.

Bet of the Day
Both Derry and Drogheda have found the back of the net in 36/44 of their combined matches and will be confident of scoring once more. 7 of both sides 8 clean sheets have came against the the bottom three sides and with both sides already scoring in these sides three meetings this season, I’m backing both sides to score once more.
