Derry City win

Derry City have been able to pick up some impressive wins in the last few games. Yet, the team are winless in eight consecutive matches at home. They have a great opportunity to recover from this run with Sligo Rovers staring at three consecutive losses for the first time this season. The head-to-head meetings between these two teams in this fixture hints at an even contest, but Derry City are likely to edge the game due to the better confidence levels.

Total goals over 2.5

The problem for Derry City so far this season has been keeping the opposition out. Even as the team goes through the best patch of form this season, Ruaidhri Higgins has seen the team manage just one clean sheet in the last five. This will give confidence to Sligo Rovers, who are going through a slump after losing back-to-back games.

Both teams to score – yes

Sligo Rovers failed to score in a league match for the first time since the loss to Derry City back in the third week of April. Even though this game will play on their minds, Liam Buckley’s men will be keen to avoid any slipups that can prove costly in their efforts to finish in the top three.

Derry City vs Sligo Rovers: Analysis of Airtricity League Match

Derry City

The recent form of Derry City will give a lot of confidence to manager Higgins, who had to face a lot of criticism in the early part of the campaign when the team’s form was not so good. Now, Derry City are only a handful of points away from competing for the third place.

Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers may have slipped to third place in the league table, but the hopes of winning the league will surely not be beyond the team. They are only three points behind Shamrock Rovers even after losing back-to-back games. Liam Buckley will be hoping that his team do not suffer more setbacks, as they already are at a disadvantage in the goal difference department.
