Longford Town vs Cobh Ramblers – Both Teams To Score

The League of Ireland is approaching the midway stage of the season and on Saturday evening two of the bottom-half dwellers in the First Division lock horns. Longford and Cobh have combined to pocket only six league wins across their collective 32 second-tier fixtures, with the duos dreadful defensive records thwarting any signs of progress.

Longford and Cobh have managed only two clean sheets between them this term with the pair owning the two worst defensive numbers in the division, shipping an enormous 61 goals in those aforementioned 32 dates. Nevertheless, the two teams have a penchant for getting on the scoresheet themselves, failing to score on only six occasions thus far.

Overall, both Longford and Cobh have delivered winning Both Teams To Score wagers in 12 (75%) of their respective 16 league matches in 2024, which includes 13 profitable plays from 17 in home/away encounters. I’m happy to support a repeat this weekend.
