Drogheda United will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 2-1 Premier Division defeat last time out to Dundalk.

The only player to score from Drogheda United was Chris Lyons (90'). David McMillan (23') and Jeong-woo Han (70') scored for Dundalk.

It has not been often in recent times where Drogheda United have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that The Drogs have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 7 goals during that time. Despite that, time will tell whether the trend will be sustained in this game.

Their prior results show that Drogheda United:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Sligo Rovers in their last 3 games.
  • are winless against Sligo Rovers in their previous 5 league games.
  • are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.

Since a loss in their previous game against Derry City in Premier Division action, Sligo Rovers and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

Will Patching (51') was the scorer for Derry City.

Their prior results show that Sligo Rovers:

  • haven't beaten Drogheda United when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
  • haven't been beaten by Drogheda United when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
  • have not been beaten in their last 4 away league matches.
