Drogheda United to Win with Handicap (-1)
The two teams that were promoted to the Premier League will meet for the fourth and last time this season. Longford Town is already relegated after a very poor season in which they only managed to win twice in 29 games, while Drogheda is currently safe. Drogheda United beat Longford Town in two of those three matches, both times pretty convincingly. So, we expect Drogheda to win this game by at least two goals.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Although we've only seen three or more goals in two of the last five h2h duels between Drogheda United and Longford Town, both of those two games were this season and both also went over 3.5 total goals. In addition to this, Drogheda United averaged 2.62 goals per game, while Longford Town averaged 2.59 goals per game this season, so our prediction is for these two teams to combine for at least three goals.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in three of the last five meetings between Drogheda United and Longford Town, so we wouldn't be surprised to see them both scoring in this match either. We don't doubt that Drogheda will score in this game, while Longford is not so certain. However, both teams have scored in 48% of all Longford Town matches this season, as well as 55% of all Drogheda United games in the league.

Drogheda United vs Longford Town preview: Can Longford avoid another defeat?
With seven games left until the end of the season in the Irish Premier League, Drogheda United is four points ahead of the spot that would force them to play in the relegation playoffs. The team that earned promotion to the PL last season will have to do well in the remaining matches to avoid this fate, starting with their next game against Longford Town, a team that's already been relegated from the league. In the last five matches in all competitions, Drogheda United has two wins, one draw, and two losses.
After earning promotion to the top flight last season Longford's fans probably hoped to play in the Premier League longer than just one year. However, Longford Town has already been relegated after they only managed to collect fourteen points from twenty nine matches. The team only managed to win twice this season, although one of those wins came recently. So, Longford can now only play for honor and nothing else.
