Competition: Irish First Division

Market: Athlone Town double chance

Odds: 4/7 @ 1xBet

Looking to extend on their play-off charge this weekend, Athlone will welcome Wexford to town on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Athlone might have suffered late heartbreak away at the Finn Harps earlier in the week as they had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate, Dario Castelo’s men have continued on an eye-catching flurry. Sat in the driving seat to punch another play-off ticket this season, the Town are unbeaten in all of their previous 10 straight matchups across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to April 5th. Signing off May with a stellar 1-0 victory against title contenders Cork City, Athlone have also gained a reputation for their continued success on home soil. In fact, Friday’s hosts have not suffered a single defeat from any of their first nine straight showdowns in Lissywollen. It should also be noted, Castelo’s high-flying squad have collected 16 points from just their last six First Division battles in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, missing out on what was a golden opportunity earlier in the week as they had to settle for a 2-2 stalemate at home against rock-bottom Longford, Wexford have shown a string of issues since opening up the 2024 campaign. Signing off May with a 1-0 loss at the hands of the Finn Harps, James Keddy’s men have collected just a single victory from any of their previous eight First Division matchups. With that extended rut stemming all the way back to April 12th, the Youths currently sit outside the play-off places. Facing what should be a stern challenge when they travel to Lissywollen on Friday night, Wexford should also concerned by a downbeat record against Athlone. Only collecting a point when they welcomed the Town to Ferrycarrig Park on May 3rd, they have secured just a sole win from any of their previous five meetings.

Bet: Athlone Town double chance against Wexford 4/7 for Friday’s Irish First Division matchup @ 1xBet
