Athlone fans will want a repeat of their previous result, being a 0-1 First Division triumph vs Bray Wanderers.
Athlone haven’t made the most of their chances in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 vs opponents during the course of their previous six matches. In those games, Athlone have also seen the tally of goals scored against them total 13.
Since being beaten in their last game against St. Patrick's Athletic in FAI Cup action, Wexford will be hoping to turn things around here.
The numbers tell their own story, and Wexford have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 10 goals in all. In defence, Wexford seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. Such a trend might not be sustained into this next game, however.
Going into this contest, Wexford haven’t won away from home in the past 5 league matches.

Team News: Wexford
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, the Wexford manager Brian O'Sullivan doesn’t have any fitness worries to report before this game.
For this match, we think that Athlone will most probably score a couple of goals when they face Wexford, who will not find it easy to get a goal of their own.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 2-0 win for Athlone at the conclusion of the game.
