Preview | Longford Away

Ramblers are back on the road this week, heading to Bishopsgate to face Longford Town on Saturday night.

The Rams will be looking to maintain their impressive start to the campaign, having picked up maximum points from their opening two fixtures. We go into the game on the back of a 2-1 victory in Kerry on opening night and a 2-1 win over Wexford in St Colman’s Park, thanks to a Tiernan O’Brien opener and a late Dale Holland header.

Meanwhile, Longford will be looking to pick up their first league win of the 2023 season after a draw and a defeat in their first two games. The Midlands side will be hoping to build on a well-earned point away to Waterford last Friday night.

There are some familiar faces to both sides that add to this Matchday 3 encounter, with former Longford players Jack Doherty & Lee Steacy hoping to seal a sweet return to Bishopsgate. On the other side, former Rams boss Stephen Henderson will be looking to notch his first league win as ‘De Town’ boss by beating his former club where he won the First Divsion title in 2007.

This fixture has a history of producing entertaining contests, with the sides sharing 16 goals across the 4 meetings last term. However, Cobh will be looking to fare better against Saturday’s opponents, having lost all four league games against the Midlands side last season. The Rams last victory against Longford dates back to 2020, with a 1-0 victory in Bishopsgate on that occasion thanks to Ian Turner’s strike.

Marc Lynch will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s clash.

Kick-off on Saturday is 19:30, with the match also being broadcast live from Bishopsgate on LOI TV. You can purchase a single match pass for just €5, here.
