Paul Higham says both teams to score in the Finn Harps v Waterford game is the best bet of Friday night's action...

"They've got two of the worst defences in the league, and Finn Harps have seen BTTS come in during their last seven games with Waterford recording four games out of the last five with both teams finding the net."

Back both teams to score in Finn Harps v Waterford @ 2.01/1

Finn Harps v Waterford
Friday 9 July 17:45 BST kick-off

There's a big weekend ahead of us but there's still some football on Friday to warm us up with, including in the Irish Premier Division where Finn Harps play host to Waterford.

It's hardly a quality contest with the sides eighth and ninth in the 10-team division, where the gap is bigger than just that single place suggests as Finn Harps sit seven points above Waterford.

Neither side is in sparkling form but Waterford have been launching something of a revival of late, with two wins and a draw in their last five games.

Finn Harps haven't won in their last six games, with just two draws to their name in that period - but their last win seven games ago did come against Friday's opponents Waterford.

The visitors present an interesting prospect being such a big price at 4.75 considering they've actually got at least a taste of victory while Finn Harps are mired in a big slump.

However, backing struggling teams to win always seems like a dodgy prospect and instead the best way to go here looks to be on both teams finding the net.

Firstly, they have two of the worst defences in the league, with Waterford dead last after conceding 39 goals in just 19 games, while Finn Harps are only two places better off in the bad defending charts after letting in 29.

That's led to a plethora of games seeing both teams score - with Finn Harps seeing BTTS come in during their last seven games.

For Waterford, the record is four games out of the last five that have seen both team find the net, so both teams to score here at 2.01/1 seems a reasonable price.
