Tip Reasoning



  • Larne created little in first-leg but profited from an early error.
  • Bala Town’s last two European away ties have featured fewer than three goals.
  • Larne have kept only four clean sheets in their last 23 games at home.

Larne lack the penetration to put Lakesiders to the sword

Larne will look to land the hefty payday that goes with progression through this round of Europa Conference League qualifying against Bala Town on Thursday.

Last week, it took a defensive mistake after 93 seconds to separate these sides and Bala Town are unlikely to be overawed by the task in hand given Larne caused them few problems otherwise.

Former Wales international David Edwards made his Lakesiders debut at the home of The New Saints, but his experience couldn’t prevent Colin Caton’s side tasting defeat.

Antony Kay faces a late fitness test ahead of the second leg due to a calf problem, but other than that, Bala Town FC have no injury concerns.

Larne ought to progress, but the fact that they huffed and puffed without creating much last week and don’t now need to win puts us off the hosts at an odds-on price.

Instead we will take Under 2.5 goals as our main selection, given the first game was low in penalty box incidents and 1-1 as a correct score play – because rarely do Larne keep clean sheets at home.
