It was the same old story for Pats as defensive weaknesses cost them points in their first game.

Meanwhile, for Longford Town, it was defensive strength that won them a hard earned three points in Wexford. Even with a long injury list Tony Cousins’ charges dispatched the “second season syndrome” nay sayers with an unexpected 0-2 win.

It’s a win that will give a lot of confidence to De Town in their aim to emulate their top half finish from last season. Realistically, though, just surviving in the division should be considered a success. A rearguard action kept Wexford Youths at bay last weekend but it will take a monumental effort to keep Pats and Chris Fagan off the scoresheet this Friday night.

The St Patricks Athletic manager, Liam Buckley, will need to come up with a way of making his defence more secure if they are to challenge for European places this season. Scoring shouldn’t be a problem but conceding goals in the manner they did against Galway could leave the season in tatters.

From a betting point of view they look likely to be heavily involved in goal production. With early season prices at odds against it’s something to take advantage of while we can.

Pats are favourites to win the game outright at 2.05 (21/20) with Paddy Power but even at odds against I couldn’t back it. Longford can be backed at 4.2 (17/5) with Ladbrokes while the draw is available at 3.6 (13/5) with Marathon Bet.

Goals should be the way to go here and both teams to score is very tempting at 2.1 (11/10) with Coral. That has just a tiny bit more appeal than the 2.25 (5/4) from Coral for +2.5 total goals.
