Draw

With just one victory between them in their last eight Premier Division matches combined, both Drogheda and Sligo are in rotten form ahead of their clash on Friday evening, and with confidence in both camps low, a share of the spoils is likely at Head in the Game Park. Four of the last five encounters between the clubs finished all square and we’re tipping the out-of-sorts outfits to cancel each other out again this week.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both Drogheda and Sligo’s recent woes have been rooted in their underperformance in the final third and with both sets of attackers firing blanks at present, we recommend backing under 2.5 goals to be scored. The Drogs have notched one of fewer times in eight of their last ten assignments – a record that Rovers have matched exactly during the same period, so don’t expect fireworks in Louth.

Half Time Result: Draw

With little in the way of excitement expected at Head in the Game Park this week, an opportunity could arise in the half time result market. Eight of Sligo’s 12 Premier Division away tests were level at the interval this season, while seven of Drogheda’s 12 home matches were all square at the half-time whistle. With those record providing compelling evidence, we’re tipping the teams to go in at level pegging again on Friday.

Drogheda United vs Sligo Rovers: Match Preview

Drogheda United

Drogheda snapped a four-match losing streak with a surprise 2-1 triumph at rivals Dundalk last time out – a result that delivered just their second win in their last ten attempts in Ireland’s top flight. Tim Clancy’s strugglers have also lost four of their last five at Head in the Game Park and The Turks’ dismal run means they are looking over their shoulders at the clubs closing in from below them.

Sligo Rovers

By some miracle Sligo still hold third spot in the Premier Division, though Rovers’ descent down the table feels inevitable. The Bit O’Red have lost seven games on the bounce in all competitions, while their current stretch of four straight defeats in the league is their worst sequence of the campaign so far.
