Sligo Rovers LLLLLL

The forward players for Sligo Rovers have made hard work of scoring goals over their last six encounters, netting the disappointing return of only 4. In those matches, The Bit o' Red have also seen the overall goal tally of their opponents equal 12. That kind of trend won’t necessarily follow through here, though.

⚡ Prediction

We’ve got the feeling that Derry City are likely to dominate possession and create several successful chances.

At the other end, Sligo Rovers could well find it tough to find the back of the net although we do reckon that they could well end up scoring here.

We’re predicting a pretty comfortable 3-1 margin for Derry City at the conclusion of the game.
