Town set for another humbling at St Pat’s
After a 3-1 loss at Finn Harps last time out, St Patrick’s Athletic have work to do in the title chase, but they should be able to get back on track when they face Longford Town at Richmond Park.
St Pat’s loss last time out has them three points behind leaders Shamrock Rovers, despite having played two games more. However, they are in good shape overall in this match-up, having won four of their past six.
Alan Mathews’ side has won four of their past five games at Richmond Park and ten of their last twelve games overall this season, including a 3-0 victory against Town in April.
St Pat’s beat Longford 1-3 on the road in June, and we don’t see anything other than a comfortable home victory this Friday.
Town are all but relegated with just one win in 25 games and 11 points, and they travel to Dublin having lost their past four games, including a 4-1 thrashing at Waterford a fortnight ago.
We expect St Pat’s to overcome a one-goal handicap in this match, and we’re also going with a 4-1 score at full-time because Town has scored in five of their previous six away games.
