Longford Town vs. Cork City

FAI Cup returns in Ireland with a quarter final match-up between Longford Town of the First Division and the champions of Ireland, Cork City.

Longford currently sit in 4th place in Ireland's 2nd tier which is the bottom play-off spot. They may make the play-offs but Drogheda, Shelbourne and Finn Harps will have a big say in that as only 3 of those 4 can make it. If they do they probably won't be the team to join UCD in the Premier Division next season as there are better teams to take that 2nd promotion spot.

Cork City are the champions but after their inexplicable 2-1 home defeat to Sligo last week they have pretty much handed the title to rivals Dundalk. A 6 point deficit is a big gap when both sides are so much better than anyone else in the league.

With that in mind, Cork's best chance of silverware is now the FAI Cup so there should now be no doubt that they'll take this competition seriously.

In Ireland, the cup rarely conflicts with league football either so as the Southern Irish side don't play again until next Friday their focus should be well and truely on this game.

Hi TFB, I appreciate your predictions on this site. My question on this match is that aren't some of Cork city players with the national team (Ireland) for the on-going UEFA National League? Don't you think it will affect the scoreline of the match?

Corks players arent good enough to play for Ireland. Most Irish national players play in England.
