Sligo Rovers to Win

Although Sligo Rovers only won once in the last five meetings with Drogheda United, we expect them to win this game. Sligo is currently third in the standings, four points ahead of Drogheda, so both teams still have a chance to secure a spot for European competitions. We expect Sligo Rovers to take matters into their own hands and get important three points in front of their own fans.

Sligo Rovers and Drogheda United to Draw at Half Time

While we do expect Sligo Rovers to win this game, we know it won't be easy. In fact, it will probably be a very close duel and we expect this match to be resolved in the second half and the first half to end in a draw. After all, three of the last five meetings between these two teams have been equal at half time.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last five head-to-head duels between Sligo Rovers and Drogheda United have gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect to see another low-scoring match when these two teams meet on Friday. Furthermore, Sligo Rovers averaged 2.10 goals per game this season, which is the worst average in the league. Meanwhile, Drogheda United averaged 2.55 goals per game so far in the league.

Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United preview: A very interesting duel

The team that won their last title in 2012 is having a solid season and they are currently third in the league. However, they are too far behind their upcoming opponent and they only have a slim, theoretical chance to win the title. Sligo is also not in the best form at the moment, with two wins, two draws, and one loss in the last five matches in the league.

With seven games left until the end of the season in the Irish Premier League, Drogheda United is four points ahead of the spot that would force them to play in the relegation playoffs. The team that earned promotion to the PL last season will have to do well in the remaining matches to avoid this fate, starting with their next game against Longford Town, a team that's already been relegated from the league. In the last five matches in all competitions, Drogheda United has two wins, one draw, and two losses.
