The FAI have announced plans to widen the scope of their investigation into suspected match fixing at Athlone Town.
Following a tip off from UEFA earlier this week the association started a probe into the SSE Airtricity League side’s 3-1 loss to Longford Town last Saturday.
It emerged that over €400,000 was reportedly wagered on Asian markets on Athlone conceding another goal in that game.
In a statement released Friday evening the FAI say they're now looking at two other games involving Athlone after receiving additional information from a source earlier in the day.
98FM Sport understands that the 4-1 loss to UCD on April 8th and the 4-1 home defeat to Shelbourne on March 25th are now being probed by the FAI.
They'll interview players, staff and officials on Monday.

The FAI have contacted the club about this new information and will commence its investigation on Monday, May 8 when meeting with players, staff and officials.
