Drogheda United to Win
Longford have been comfortably the worst performers in the 2021 Irish Premier Division and the league’s bottom club have won only one of their 19 fixtures this season. Drogheda have already recorded two comfortable victories over their hosts this term, notching eight times in the process, and they are our tip to bag another three points at Town's expense this weekend.
Over 1.5 Drogheda United Team Goals
Drogheda cut loose in both of their encounters with Longford earlier in the campaign, recording emphatic 4-1 and 4-0 victories over Town in May and April respectively. The chances of another comfortable Drogs win seem high on Saturday, especially when you consider that Longford hold the division’s second-worst defensive record. Bettors are advised to back Drogheda to score at least twice with that in mind.
Mark Doyle to Score Anytime
Drogheda hitman and leading scorer Mark Doyle found the net in each of Drogheda’s two victories over Longford this term and the 22-year-old sharpened his finishing skills with his eighth effort of the campaign against Finn Harps last week. In-form Doyle will have Longford in his sights again on Saturday and the talented marksman is an excellent price to make his mark in the anytime goalscorer stakes on Saturday.
Longford Town vs Drogheda United: Match Preview
2021 has been a season of torment for Longford and Daire Doyle and Town’s miserable record of just one win in 19 Premier Division fixtures shows just how uncompetitive they have been. Longford have gone a huge 18 games without a win since their opening day triumph over Derry City and a swift return to the second-tier beckons for the newly-promoted outfit.
Tim Clancy’s Super Drogs were promoted alongside Longford this year though Drogheda have found the transition back to top-flight football much smoother than Saturday’s opponents. Striker Mark Doyle is one of several exciting youngsters making a real impact in the Premier Division and a top-half finish – which would be beyond expectations – looks an achievable target.
