Over 2.5 goals
This should be a game that contains a lot of goals – Derry City although they sit 4th in the table have conceded the most goals out of any club in the top six. Longford's dreadful season is mostly down to the fact they can't stop conceding, they have conceded a league-high 48 goals so far. Backing both teams to have chances, the over 2.5 goal market seems a great way to play.
Both teams to score
We are backing both teams to score in this match. Longford to no one's surprise are the league's lowest scorers only finding the back of the net 18 times all season but 11 of these have come away from home. The strugglers have scored in four of their last five away matches and coming up against a fairly generous Derry defence this trend could continue. Derry have seen both teams score in three of their last four matches, so again look good value when backing both teams to find the back of the net.
Derry City to win
Surprisingly Derry are priced at 1/2 to win this game despite coming into the match in a much stronger position in the table. Longford have only won once in their last six. Playing at home against a side that has only mustered five points away from home all year, backing Derry to win, must be one of the best bets on offer.
