Neither Bohs nor Longford will be happy about skirting above the relegation positions even if it is still very early.

Longford should probably be the most concerned with their early season form. After an opening win that some may claim was fortunate they picked up a solitary point in their next four games while the 6-0 defeat by Cork City goes someway to exhibiting the struggles they are facing.

With Dundalk, an in form Derry City, two trips out West and Shamrock Rovers all to be faced in their next five games the portents are poor for De Town. They may need at least a point against Bohs to keep their position skirting above the relegation zone rather than in it.

Bohemians’ home form looks likely to be strong enough to keep them out of trouble with two wins and a draw in their three matches so far. They have bagged an impressive seven goals at Dalymount but will be rightly concerned by the three they conceded to Wexford Youths.

They have suffered just four defeats in their last twenty-five home league games. Dundalk, Cork, Pats and, bizarrely, Drogheda Utd are the only teams to take three points from Dalymount since May in 2014.

Ismahil Akinade should be fit to return for Bohs and alongside Kurtis Byrne can certainly cause Longford some problems. Keith Long is confident that his Bohs side have plenty more to show and he will be determined they start to show it on Friday night.

The head to head record shows that Bohs won 3-1 in the recent League Cup match but that should have a certain amount of salt sprinkled on it. Although, interestingly, Bohs did beat Longford by the same scoreline in the league cup last year and then followed it up with a 2-0 win just three days later.


Bohemians v Longford Town Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

Bohemians opened at odds against but that barely lasted long enough to be taken advantage of and they are now best priced at 1.7 (7/10) with Marathon Bet. Longford Town can be backed at a high of 5/1 with bet365 while the draw is available at 3.92 (35/12) with Marathon Bet.

There appears to be much more value in backing Bohs to score +1.5 team goals at 1.9 (9/10) with Betfair. Both teams to score could have a good chance at 2.05 (21/20) with Betvictor and Betfair while +2.5 goals has less appeal at 2.1 (11/10) with Marathon Bet
