Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Saturday’s clash between Longford and Sligo Rovers will bring down the curtain on day 19 of the new Ireland Premier Division campaign. Longford are having a season to forget, with the team collecting only 9 points in total from possible 54. The rock-bottom side are eager to put an end to their dreadful winless run, but they will have a mountain to climb in Saturday’s football match.
Sligo Rovers desperately needed a win against Bohemians, and they managed to get one in style (4-0), with Johny Kenny scoring a brace. The Bit O’Red aim to stay in the title race, and we predict that they will take advantage of Longford’s shaky defence. In their last meeting in the Irish top flight Sligo defeated Longford 2-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
