Limerick vs Athlone Town by TFB

Runaway leaders Limerick have a chance to extend their already huge lead at the top of the First Division to 15 points as they welcome 2nd bottom Athlone Town to the Markets Field Stadium in Limerick.


The home side have demolished every side they have played so far this season by winning all 10 of their opening games with relative ease. At home they have scored 25 goals from 5 games scoring 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 goals against their 5 opponents. Not much else to say apart from they should do something similar at home against the team who only have Cabinteely below them.


Goals can come from any area of the pitch for Limerick. They have O'Flynn on 7 goals from 8 matches, Greene with 5 from 9, Duggan with 4 from 10 and even their defence have chipped in with Williams and Tracy both netting 4 times this season.


Their opponents, Athlone Town, have had a disappointing start to the season. Only two years ago they were in the Premier Division mixing with the best sides in Ireland but since their relegation they have been poor and haven't looked like returning to the top flight any time soon.


This season they have simply conceded too many goals. Scoring goals hasn't been a problem as they have only drawn a blank once in their first 10 games which was a 5-0 loss to Limerick early in the season. Romanian Marco Chindea is currently the league's 3rd highest scorer on 5 and Athlone will be hoping he'll add to his tally.


Limerick will be expected to make this win number 11 out of 11 but the leaders have conceded in 4 of their first 5 home matches and Athlone have found the net in all 5 away games so far. With the odds on offer this is surely worth a small stake punt.
