Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Bishopsgate will host Saturday’s football game between Longford and St. Patricks, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 15. Longford are on a four-game losing run in the Irish top flight, with the team collecting no more than four points in total to date. Daire Doyle’s troops have been struggling in front of goal, with the team failing to find the net in three of their last four league fixtures, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Friday’s game.
The Saints, on the other hand, aim to keep their title hopes alive, and we do not believe that they will have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. St Patricks’ defender Shane Griffin, who suffered an injury in the 2-2 draw with Derry City, is rated doubtful for the match.
