Shelbourne will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following a 0-2 Premier Division victory versus Shamrock Rovers.

In that match, Shelbourne managed 35% possession and 5 shots on goal with 3 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Shelbourne was Will Jarvis (19', 58'). On the other side, Shamrock Rovers got 17 shots on goal with 3 of them on target.

Their latest results really do illustrate the point that huge efforts have been put in by the Shelbourne defence. Shelbourne have given the opposition little, with the tally of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last 6 outings standing at 3.

Looking at the pre-match facts, Shelbourne:

  • haven't been beaten in the league by Sligo Rovers in their previous 5 games.
  • are undefeated in their last 4 home league matches.

In the game prior to this, Sligo Rovers drew 2-2 in the Premier Division match with Derry City.

In that match, Sligo Rovers had 27% possession and 5 shots at goal with 3 on target. For Sligo Rovers, the goals were scored by Reece Hutchinson (18') and Niall Morahan (67'). On the other side, Derry City got 24 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. Michael Duffy (51') and Will Patching (83') scored for Derry City.

The strike force from Sligo Rovers have struggled for goals in their past six games, netting the disappointing return of just 4. In those matches, The Bit o' Red have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 9. That aside, it remains to be seen whether such a trend might be replicated in this upcoming game.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Sligo Rovers:

  • are winless against Shelbourne when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.
  • are undefeated in their previous 2 away league matches.
  • have not won away from home in their last 5 matches in the league.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A glance at their past head-to-head clashes going back to 09/09/2022 shows that Shelbourne have won 4 of these & Sligo Rovers 1, with the tally of draws standing at 1.

A combined total of 12 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 8 of them from The Shels and 4 coming from The Bit o' Red. That is an average goals per game value of 2.

🗞️ Team News: Shelbourne

Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Shelbourne manager Damien Duff to contend with from an otherwise complete group. Dáithí Folan (Leg injury) is sidelined.

🗞️ Team News: Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers manager John Russell has to choose a team with limited availability. Nando Pijnaker (Rib fracture) and John Mahon (Achilles tendon problems) are not able to play.

⚡ Prediction

We’re inclined to think that Shelbourne look set to create enough chances to score more than one when they line up against Sligo Rovers, who could well struggle to score.

Accordingly, we see a comfortable 2-0 victory for Shelbourne after 90 minutes.
