Competition: Irish First Division

Market: Limerick win

Odds: 7/1 @ Bet 365

Handed the chance to move into the play-off positions, Limerick will travel to a struggling Carlisle Grounds on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of another very worrying display in their 2-1 defeat away at Cabinteely last weekend, Bray have seen their play-off ambitions take a major dent. Suffering a pair of consecutive defeats and losing five of their last six appearances, a run that stems back to the 24th of May, Head Coach Gary Cronin has a real headache on his hands. Now sat seven points adrift of reclaiming their spot in the play-offs, fans around Carlisle Grounds will also have growing concerns over Bray’s form on home soil. Friday’s hosts have now lost two of their last three matches in front of their own supporters and this weekend could prove to be another extremely tough test for Cronin’s men.

As for the visitors, putting in another dominant display in their 3-1 win over fellow play-off contenders Longford last weekend, the mood in Limerick’s camp couldn’t be any higher. Winning four of their last seven and tasting defeat just once since the start of May, Friday’s guests will also be boosted by their very eye-catching record against Bray. Picking up a 1-0 win when the two sides last met back in May, it is also worth noting that Limerick have won five of their last six matches against their hosts this weekend. Considering Bray’s continued struggles and Limerick’s stellar record against Cronin’s men, 7/1 seems like a very eye-catching bet for Friday’s contest.
