Is there an international break on the horizon?  Look at the matches we are left with , yesterday and today! Another day which does not really appeal. The Irish Premier Division is too early into the season. I do think Falkirk should beat Cowdenbeath.

7:45pm - Cork City v Galway Utd  - 1.39 home

Standout Stats

  • No head to heads.
  • This is 5th v 8th in the Irish Premier League.

Cork City

  • The season is only 3 matches old Draw Win Draw


  • Loss, Loss, Win for Galway

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Little or nothing to work with here at all in the start of the new Irish Premier League season. I suspect Galway are newly promoted as there are no head to heads. A watching brief therefore although I would be interested if Galway score first.

7:45pm - Cowdenbeath v Falkirk  - 1.62 away

Standout Stats

  • Falkirk are unbeaten in the last 6 matches.
  • This is 9th v 5th in the Scottish Championship


  • Failed to score in their last 5 home matches.
  • No win in 7 home matches.
  • Failed to score in 6 of their last 8 matches.
  • Since November at home, they have not scored more than 1 goal at home.
  • Only 1 0-0 at home


  • No defeat in 7 away matches
  • Scored in their last 7 away and conceded in their last 4 away
  • Only 2 defeats in 15 matches, came v Raith and Hearts
  • 3-1-3-3-3-2-3 scored in recent away matches.
  • Only 1 0-0 away

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • This looks fairly straightforward. With Falkirk scoring 2+ goals with regularity away from home, and Cowdenbeath scoring at most 1 goal , the away side must be favoured.
  • I would lay Cowdenbeath if they score first.

7:45pm - Sheff Utd v Scunthorpe  - 1.82 home

Standout Stats

  • 1-1 the last time these 2 met.
  • This is 5th v 17th in the League One

Sheffield United

  • Scored in their last 11 matches and last 8 at home
  • All defeats at home v 10th and higher
  • Scored and conceded in their last 10 matches.
  • 2 consecutive home losses 1-2.
  • Only 2 clean sheets in 21 matches,
  • No 0-0
  • 9 0-0's at halftime at home
  • Scored 19 of their 25 goals in the 2nd half at home.


  • No win in 7 matches and in 5 away
  • Conceded in their last 12 away matches.
  • Against top 13 , Scunthorpe have conceded in all aways, and conceded 2+ goals in 7 matches.
  • Conceded 2+ goals in their last 4 away matches
  • No 0-0
  • 5 0-0's at halftime away
  • 23 of 32 goals conceded in the 2nd half away

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • This could be a 2nd half match. Do not be surprised with a 0-0 at halftime.
  • Sheffield United could concede again today but will be keen to avoid another 1-2 defeat. They have a better time of it against lower half sides so if both teams to score, I don't expect Sheffield United to lose.
  • Scunthorpe could reasonably concede 2 today  so you could lay them if they score first.

8pm - Longford v Bray  - 1.67 home

Standout Stats

  • These 2 I think are newcomers to the Irish Premier Division as their last 2 head to heads were play offs.
  • Longford have 2 losses and a 2-2 draw.
  • Bray have lost all 3 without scoring

Profitable In-Play Opportunities

  • Not a match which interests. There is little to work with statistically.Longford have at least scored 2 goals in their last match. If Bray continue to fail to score, then Longford pick themselves.
