LOI First Division: League Leaders Coming To Lissywollen

Galway have won all six of their games with a healthy goal difference.

Athlone Town will have to overcome the First Division's form side if they're to secure back to back wins for the first time this season.

League leaders Galway are coming to the midlands this evening.

John Caufield's side have won all six of their games, boasting a goal difference of +14 already.

However, depending on results, Athlone can end the evening second in the standings with a victory.

The visit of Galway coincides with a tough run of games, with the midlanders playing the three teams currently above them in the league in succession.

Town's manager Dermot Lennon is under no illusions about how tricky tonight's task will be:

Elsewhere in the First Division, second placed Bray go to Cobh Ramblers, Wexford host Treaty United and Waterford play Finn Harps. 

There are four games down for decision in the Premier Division of the SSE Airtricity League tonight.  

Second placed Derry City are in Tolka Park to take on Shelbourne.

A win for the visitors would see them go level on points with leaders Bohemians, at least until tomorrow.

Elsewhere, champions Shamrock Rovers once again go in search of their first win of the season.

They're away to Dundalk while Cork entertain Drogheda and there's a Dublin derby in Inchicore between St. Pat's and UCD. 

All of those games get underway at 7.45.
