Both Teams to Score
Shamrock Rovers are on course to successfully defend their Premier Division crown this season, though the Hoops have been noticeably short on clean sheets this term, especially at home. They have kept visitors to the Tallaght Stadium off the scoresheet just once in 11 attempts this term, while BTTS has landed in 82% of the same games. Both teams have scored in 100% of Longford’s last four away assignments and a similar outcome looks possible when they travel to the capital on Sunday.
Shamrock Rovers Win & Both Teams to Score
Coupling our BTTS tip with a home win on Sunday could also be a smart move at more favourable odds. Table-topping Rovers are on a five-match winning streak in all competitions ahead of their clash with bottom club Longford and the Hoops should have far too much quality for Town to deflect. Longford have gone a dismal 21 Premier Division fixtures without a victory and their appalling record should look worse when the full-time whistle is blown at the Tallaght Stadium.
Graham Burke to Score Anytime
Former Republic of Ireland international Graham Burke has been hitting all the right notes in the final third for Shamrock Rovers of late, notching an impressive five goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions. Burke found the net when Longford last visited the Tallaght Stadium in April and the 27-year-old is worth backing to punish the same opponents on Sunday.
Shamrock Rovers vs Longford Town: Match Preview
Alongside their strong domestic displays, Shamrock Rovers are one of several Irish teams making a real splash on the continent of late and the Dublin-based outfit recorded a 1-0 win over Albanian club Teuta Durrës in the Europa Conference League qualifiers on Thursday. In the Premier Division, Rovers have won three games on the bounce and they look ready to put the foot down in their pursuit of another title.
Longford were very much second best when they fell to a 2-0 reverse at home to Derry City last time out – a result that pushed their achingly poor winless streak to 21 games. Already a whopping 11 points from safety, Daire Doyle’s men will be preparing for life back in the second-tier and a return to a division where they could actually win a few games and enjoy their football might not be the worst outcome for the club.
