Longford vs Shamrock Rovers Predictions

  • Longford Town failed to win the last five home league games and failed to score in the last four at home.
  • Shamrock Rovers have won four of the last five away Premier Division matches.
  • Shamrock Rovers have scored more than two goals in only one of 13 league games played this season.

Time for Rovers to rediscover rhythm after blip

Longford Town look to avenge their 2-1 defeat to Shamrock Rovers earlier this season as the visitors bid to go top of the table with a win.

Having seen their 33-game unbeaten streak come to an end against Dundalk, alarm bells are now starting to ring after Shamrock Rovers’ subsequent loss to Sligo.

The Hoops were knocked off the Premier Division summit and suffered their first home defeat since June 2019 in Monday’s showdown between the top two.

Manager Stephen Bradley was able to find some positives in the manner of Rovers’ 2-1 defeat to Dundalk the previous Friday, but there was little to take heart from at Tallaght Stadium.

Bradley cited injuries for his side’s dismal display that gave the Sligo goalkeeper little to do – including washing his kit for the next match as it remained in pristine condition throughout.

Longford won’t have been earmarking many points from this game a week ago, but may now sense an opportunity to avenge their 2-1 defeat in Dublin earlier this season.

Town pushed Drogheda United hard on Monday, but had no answer to the hosts’ prolific forward line.

And this also looks like a mismatch in all areas of the field, including the penalty boxes where Longford lack a reliable goalscorer.

We’ll take the Hoops to get back to winning ways on Saturday with the sort of professional display that was their hallmark until recently and a 2-0 scoreline that has been recorded in two of their last four away victories.
