Athlone Town vs UCD
Irish First Division action sees a top vs. bottom clash at the Athlone Town Stadium.
Athlone Town have been poor all season and have regularly lost by 3, 4, 5 or even 6 & 7 goals. From their 21 games they have only amassed 5 points which consists of 1 victory and 2 draws. At home they generally are a little better as all 5 points have come on home soil but they have still suffered some heavy defeats. Mostly recently a 1-3 loss to Cabinteely.
UCD lead the First Division by 5 points from Drogheda and this is a good opportunity to extend that lead. Top scorer Georgie Kelly left for Dundalk in the summer break but that didn't seem to affect them too much as the Dublin side recorded a relatively comfortable 2-0 home win over Galway.
Sometimes Athlone can be stubborn at home but UCD should still get the 3 points and score at least a couple.
UCD have won the last 7 meetings and all by at least 2 goals.
