Derry City – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"The Candystripes" were in the hunt for the championship title last year but finished second. This season, they might end up in the same position, though the battle for the Premiership title continues.

Out of 23 matches played, they have only four losses, and nearly half, eleven, ended in victories for the "red and white." This includes winning all of their last three matches.

Drogheda United – the shape of the team and its analysis:

"The Turks" have been relegated to the First Division multiple times. Against this backdrop, finishing seventh in 2023 could be considered a good result, especially considering their current struggles.

Until mid-season, they were collecting points fairly regularly, including three victories. However, the end of spring and the start of summer have been disastrous: a 0-0 draw with St. Patrick's Athletic and five losses, sending them to the bottom of the table.
