Competition: Irish First Division
Market: Galway win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Smelling a golden chance to extend on their stellar run of form this weekend, Galway will welcome away day strugglers Cobh Ramblers to Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Galway might still be in a real battle to secure an automatic Premier Division return this year, they are enjoying a hugely impressive run of form. Cruising their way to a play-off spot and putting in another dominant display last time out, The Tribesmen were last seen picking up a deserved 2-0 victory away at fellow top-five contenders UC Dublin. Really bouncing back from that defeat against Shelbourne last month and embarking on a real romp over the past five weeks, Head Coach John Caulfield finds his side now enjoying a four-match First Division winning run. Smelling a golden chance when they return to Eamonn Deacy Park on Friday night, it should also be noted that Galway have recorded three clean sheets on the spin.
As for the visitors, while Cobh might have managed to find a much-needed boost when heading into June, they have struggled to keep up that momentum and face another stern test this weekend. Last seen getting hit with a 2-1 defeat away at Bray earlier in the month and now shipping over 1.5 goals in each of their last three First Division contests on the spin, it should also be noted that Stuart Ashton’s side have gained a real reputation for their issues on the road. Including that defeat away at Bray last weekend, The Ramblers have lost three of their last four second-tier contests and they should also be concerned by their most recent meeting against the hosts. Hit with a 4-0 drumming against Galway when the two sides faced off back in May, we’re backing a similar home win here.
Bet: Galway 1/2 to beat Cobh Ramblers in Friday’s Irish First Division matchup @ 888sport
