Competition: Irish First Division
Market: Treaty United win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a real purple patch, Treaty United will welcome Cabinteely to Markets Field on Friday night when this weekend’s Irish First Division fixtures open up.
Starting with the hosts, while Treaty would have been disappointed to have seen their FAI Cup run come to an end against top-flight Dundalk on July 25th, Tommy Barrett’s men certainly bounced back in some style. Enjoying what has been a real First Division purple patch over the past month, The Red and Whites were last seen picking up a thumping 4-1 victory away at Athlone Town. With the mood in their camp still at a real high, Treaty have managed to muster 10 points from just their last four second-tier matchups. Opening this weekend’s fixtures still sat second in the table, Friday’s hosts should be smelling a golden chance to extend on their promotion charge at Markets Field. Bagging themselves 10 goals on their four-match unbeaten run, Barrett’s side appear at attractive odds here.
As for the visitors, while Treaty might find themselves enjoying a recent purple patch, the same cannot be said for a struggling Cabinteely. Crashing out of the FAI Cup thanks to a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Wexford on July 23rd, Pat Devlin’s side were last seen putting in another hugely worrying display. Once again showing a host of issues at the back when they welcomed Bray to Kilbogget Park last weekend, The Whites were hit with another 3-0 defeat. Enduring what has become a real First Division nightmare, it should be noted that Cabinteely have lost each of their last seven matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to June 11th. Facing what should be another overwhelming test when they make the trip to a high-flying Treaty on Friday night, we’re backing a home win here.
Bet: Treaty United 7/10 to beat Cabinteely in Friday’s Irish First Division showdown @ 888sport
