📊 Form Guide

St. Patrick's Athletic LWLDLL

St. Patrick's Athletic will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 3-0 Premier Division loss in their previous game against Waterford.

Ali Coote (24'), John Martin (28') and Michael O'Connor (81') scored for Waterford.

An interesting aspect of more recent St. Patrick's Athletic games is the number of results with a nil in them.

From their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in 6 of them a wager on BTTS would have lost. That pattern won’t necessarily be continued here, however.

A look at their previous results shows us that St. Patrick's Athletic:

  • are unbeaten in the league by Sligo Rovers in their previous 6 matches.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 2 home league matches.

Sligo Rovers WLWWWW 📈

Sligo Rovers will go into the meeting following on from a 3-1 Premier Division win to beat Finn Harps in their previous fixture.

For Sligo Rovers, the scorers were Ryan de Vries (7'), Ronan Murray (73') and Ronan Coughlan (85'). Mark Russell (59') scored for Finn Harps.

Sligo Rovers have been good when going forward leading up to this encounter, having scored 13 times in their last 6 matches. Having said that, The Bit o' Red have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same games.

Going into this encounter, Sligo Rovers have left without a victory over St. Patrick's Athletic when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league matches.

🤜🤛 Head to head

An examination of their past head to head results going back to 15/09/2018 tells us that these fixtures have been pretty painful for Sligo Rovers. They have not managed to come away with any wins at all whereas St. Patrick's Athletic have remained in the ascendancy, beating them in 83 per cent of those ties.

A combined sum of 14 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 10 of them from Saints and 4 coming from The Bit o' Red. That is an average goals per game value of 2.33.

The previous league game between these sides was Premier Division match day 2 on 21/02/2020 when it finished Sligo Rovers 0-2 St. Patrick's Athletic.

The match was refereed by Neil Doyle.

ℹ️ Team News: St. Patrick's Athletic

St. Patrick's Athletic boss Stephen O'Donnell will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game with a fully healthy group available for selection.

It’s our opinion that Saints could line up in a 3-5-2 system for this game, beginning the first half with Brendan Clarke, Luke McNally, Ian Bermingham, Lee Desmond, Robbie Benson, Jamie Lennon, Rory Feely, Jordan Gibson, Billy King, Chris Forrester and Georgie Kelly.

📰 Team News: Sligo Rovers

With a fully healthy group to choose from, Sligo Rovers manager Liam Buckley has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.

We’re of the thinking that The Bit o' Red could decide to play in a 4-3-3 system using Edward McGinty, Lewis Banks, Teemu Penninkangas, Kyle Callan-McFadden, Regan Donelon, Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe, David Cawley, Niall Morahan, Jesse Devers, Ronan Coughlan and Ryan De Vries.

⚡ Prediction

Our feeling is that Sligo Rovers will really need to work well to hit the back of the net against this St. Patrick's Athletic lineup who we reckon should score at least once to put them ahead.

We’re therefore expecting a good battle with a 1-0 advantage for St. Patrick's Athletic at the end of the 90 minutes.
