Finn Harps to Win
Finn Harps finally snapped their eight-match winless run last weekend when they battled their way to a hugely impressive 1-0 win at high-flying Sligo Rovers. The Harps’ display at the Showgrounds was a timely confidence booster ahead of their trip to play bottom club Longford on Saturday and we’re tipping the visitors to harness their fresh self-belief against a Town side that has failed to win any of their last 22 Premier Division assignments.
Under 2.5 Goals
The evidence suggests that any margin of victory for Finn Harps this weekend is almost certain to be a slender one however. The Harps and Longford are two of the Premier Division’s three lowest scoring teams and under 2.5 goals have been scored in 59% and 65% of their fixtures this term respectively. Finn Harps notched exactly one goal in seven of their last nine games, so don’t expect fireworks when they travel to Longford.
Half Time Result: Draw
Finn Harps have only held a half-time lead on the road once in 12 attempts this season, while nine of the 11 goals they have plundered in away games this term have also been scored after the interval. Ollie Horgan’s men are generally slow starters away from Ballybofey and that in turn makes the half-time draw market an appealing choice at the prices on offer.
Longford vs Finn Harps: Match Preview
Longford were edged out by champions Shamrock Rovers in their last league fixture – pushing their search for a second win of the campaign to a whopping 22 matches in the process. Daire Doyle’s men are now a huge 12 points from safety as we approach the business end of the season and their return to the First Division is now a matter of when and not if.
Finn Harps finally halted their slide towards the foot of the table last week when they somehow mustered enough confidence to claim maximum points against a strong Sligo outfit. Manager Ollie Horgan will be determined to not let his players’ new confidence go to waste and another victory on Saturday could see Harps return to the safety of eighth spot.
