In Leinster, it’s Louth vs Longford in the opening round. Recently, Louth were dropped from Division 3 after winning just once in the League. In contrast, Longford remained safely above the dropzone despite conceding their final game with Cork.


Louth and Longford were both successful at this stage of the competition in 2019. But, initial success was followed by defeats. For Louth, that was as good as it got as they were knocked out in the first qualifying round GAA fixture. Longford went just one round further before being dumped by Tyrone.

In January, these sides met in the first round of the League. On that occasion, Longford were three-point winners.

That set the trend for Louth in the League. However, most recently the beat Down on the final day to gather some much-needed confidence ahead of the Championship. Otherwise, Longford are without as much match practice. Furthermore, the one competitive game they have played since the restart ended in defeat to Derry.

Longford manager Padraic Davis hasn’t had the luxury of using a full club Championship to prime his players. Unfortunately, Longford’s club Championship suffered worse than most and many games were postponed. In fact, the Senior Football Championship has still not been completed. Hence, it is hard to know what to expect from Longford when they are in the heat of knock-out Championship.

Paddy Power still see Longford as 1/2 favourites to advance. Meanwhile, Louth are 2/1 underdogs and a draw is 15/2.

The match is live on GAA GO.

Prediction: Louth.

Louth vs Down Division 4 Football Preview and Live score commentary

Louth’s relegation to Division 4 was confirmed after round 6. At the other end of the table, Down got two points against Leitrim without even lining-out. The cancellation of that game left them second in the table and favourites to join Cork in Division 2. Louth vs Down is on Sunday at 2pm.

Louth started well against Cork. However, the rebels are a class above everyone in the division and once they found their stride Louth had no reply.

Yet, 0-16 is a promising tally to take them forward. They begin their Championship against Longford on November 1st. As a result, with nothing to gain from the Down game Wayne Kierans may experiment this weekend.

Whereas Paddy Tally has not seen his team in competitive action at all yet. He would have no doubt preferred to play against Leitrim.

Team News

Patrick Reilly and Emmet Coralan saw the line for Louth in the closing stages last weekend. Kierans will be expecting a more disciplined outing from his side this time out.

Meanwhile, Down have just the one game to get their team right before Championship
