Derry City

Derry City won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 1-2 Premier Division loss in their previous game against Finn Harps.

The only scorer from Derry City was James Akintunde (16'). Karl O'Sullivan (53') and Adam Foley (89') scored for Finn Harps.

It has been a rare occasion in recent games where Derry City haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that The Candystripes have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 7 goals on the way.

Coming into this meeting, Derry City have not won at home in their last 5 league matches. That's never good.

Longford Town

For Longford Town, the goals were scored by Dylan Grimes (6') and Rob Manley (14'). Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe (20') and Chris Shields (81') scored for Dundalk.

The stats don’t lie, and Longford Town have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 12 goals in all. Defensively, The Town certainly have room for improvement. Such a pattern won’t necessarily be continued into this next game, however.

Coming into this meeting, Longford Town have not won away from home in their last 5 league matches.
