Tommy Barrett’s men on the road again for Athlone Town clash

Treaty boast the second best defence in the league, leaking just four goals in their six games, and come into this one as favourites.

Treaty United are back in League of Ireland First Division action away to Athlone Town on Monday night, as they look to get back on track following Friday’s defeat at home to Finn Harps.

Tommy Barrett’s side now reside in fourth place in the league table, while Athlone sit in eighth, having won just one game this season.

It was a 1-0 loss for Treaty United last time out, as a Tony McNamee strike ensured Finn Harps left Markets Field with all three points.

Lee Devitt remains suspended, serving the final game of his two-match ban for his red card against Cork City. He joins Darren Nwankwo, Callum McNamara and Colin Conroy as the absentees, the trio all currently out due to injury.

Athlone have conceded 15 goals this season, a record only worsened by Bray Wanderers. For comparison, Treaty boast the second best defence in the league, leaking just four goals in their six games, and come into this one as favourites.

A win for the Shannonsiders could see them rise back up to second place, depending on other results.

Kick off Monday evening is at 5pm in Athlone Town Stadium.
