Sligo Rovers will come into the match after a 3-0 Premier Division win against Finn Harps in their last fixture.

For Sligo Rovers, the goals were scored by Aidan Keena (3', 86') and Karl O'Sullivan (7').

The stats tell the story, and Sligo Rovers have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 8 goals in total. In defence, Sligo Rovers seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. Previous results aside, we must now wait to see whether that pattern will continue on in this next match or not.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Sligo Rovers:

  • haven't been beaten by Drogheda United in away games against them for the last 6 matches in the league. A solid away record against them.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 4 league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A look at their prior head to head clashes stretching back to 30/04/2021 tells us that Drogheda United have won 1 of these and Sligo Rovers 3, with the tally of drawn results being 2.

A combined total of 15 goals were shared by the two clubs during those clashes, with 5 for The Drogs and 10 for The Bit o' Red. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.5.

The previous league meeting featuring these clubs was Premier Division match day 12 on 23/04/2022 when it ended Sligo Rovers 3-2 Drogheda United.

The match was refereed by Damien McGraith.

🗞️ Team News: Drogheda United

Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Drogheda United boss Kevin Doherty to be concerned about due to a largely intact group. Darragh Markey (Metatarsal Fracture) is out of contention.

We are thinking that The Drogs may well make use of the 4-3-2-1 system featuring Colin McCabe, Luke Heeney, Andrew Quinn, Evan Weir, Dane Massey, Darragh Nugent, Ryan Brennan, Dayle Rooney, Gary Deegan, James Clarke and Dean Williams.

📋 Team News: Sligo Rovers

Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the Sligo Rovers manager Liam Buckley does not have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.

There’s a good chance that The Bit o' Red might make use of a 4-5-1 formation, starting Edward McGinty, Lewis Banks, Shane Blaney, Colm Horgan, Patrick Kirk, Karl O'Sullivan, Adam McDonnell, Max Mata, Niall Morahan, William Fitzgerald and Aidan Keena.

✨ Prediction

We’ve got the feeling that Drogheda United will do well to register a score against this Sligo Rovers team who we think might manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.

We’re therefore expecting a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning score for Sligo Rovers at the conclusion of the game.

Hoping for a good game.
