In a matchup that could see a host of chances at both ends of the pitch this weekend, Athlone Town will host Treaty United on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, crashing out of the FAI Cup last weekend after what was a remarkable meeting, Athlone are a side seeking some stability. In their opening 16 First Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, three draws and seven defeats, scoring 23 and conceding 23 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 21, they open Friday’s fixtures sat sixth in the table and four points adrift of breaking into the top-four. As for their recent run of results, eventually suffering a penalties defeat after their stunning 4-4 draw against Waterford on home soil, Athlone have managed to win just one of their last eight First Division contests. Already playing out a pair of 4-4 draws so far this month, it should be noted that Athlone’s last two home fixtures have produced 12 goals.
As for the visitors, despite also seeing their FAI Cup run come to an end last weekend, Treaty have continued to impress with their displays on the road. In their 16 First Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, five draws and just three defeats, scoring 23 and conceding 16 in return. Mustering themselves a points tally of 29 and opening Friday’s fixtures sat third in the table, they also hold a five-point buffer from dropping out of the top-four. As for their recent run of second-tier results, Treaty have lost just one of their last seven First Division matchups, a run that has also seen them win three straight contests on the road. Likewise, it should also be highlighted that this weekend’s guests have seen seven of their last eight away fixtures finish with both teams finding the net.
