Sligo Rovers to Win
Sligo Rovers ended a three-game winless slump in style last week when they hammered a fancied Bohemians team 4-0 at the Showgrounds – a result that launched them into third spot ahead of their conquered opponents. On the road, Sligo have been the most potent force in the Irish Premier Division this term, amassing more points on their travels than any other side. With that outstanding record considered, our tip backs Sligo to secure another away victory at bottom club Longford on Saturday.
Both Teams to Score
While we expect Sligo’s superior class to eventually tell in Longford, the hosts could well bag a consolation. Daire Doyle’s men found the net in all but one of their last six league fixtures, while Rovers have kept only one clean sheet in their last seven games away from home. BTTS has landed in five of their nine away contests overall this term and the same market appeals at the odds quoted this week.
Jordan Gibson to Score Anytime
Plenty of Sligo players have chipped in with goals this season, though Jordan Gibson has been the most outstanding individual performer. The exciting 23-year-old tops the scoring charts at Rovers with six goals this term and it’s worth noting that four of his efforts were plundered in away games. The midfielder has developed a real knack for producing the goods on the road, and that makes him an outstanding candidate in the anytime goalscorer market for Saturday.
Longford Town vs Sligo Rovers: Match Preview
Newly promoted Longford Town look certain to be embroiled in a season-long relegation dogfight this term and their return of just one win from 18 top-flight fixtures is dismal. Daire Doyle’s charges managed to win just one of their first nine home matches since their return to the Premier Division and they were turned over at Bishopsgate in each of their last four runouts there.
With three victories in four at home and three wins in five on the road, Sligo have been gliding through the gears of late and Liam Buckley’s men are among the front-runners at the summit of the Premier Division after 18 rounds of games. Rovers are targeting their third straight victory over Longford this term having already taken six points from six against them in 2021.
