Derry City Double Chance

Things are going from bad to worse for Sligo who were beaten for the sixth time in a row on Sunday when they were gunned down by Bohemians, and out-of-form Rovers could be worth opposing again against a Derry team on the rise. City won each of their last three Premier Division fixtures and they hold the league’s third-best away record this term, and those factors suggest the Candystripes are overpriced in the double chance market this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

While we’ve tipped Derry to avoid defeat at The Showgrounds, we aren’t expecting a thrilling contest in Sligo. 100% of the last five encounters between Rovers and City produced under 2.5 goals and when you consider that Sligo have scored only once in their last four Premier Division assignments, the same market holds plenty of appeal on Saturday.

Half With Most Goals: Second

Remarkably, every goal notched in the last four skirmishes between Sligo and Derry City were registered in the second half and with that pattern of cagey opening periods set, bettors have an opportunity to take advantage. Rovers have only scored one first-half goal in their last four matches, while four of Derry’s last six efforts were netted after the break and we're tipping the second half to see the majority of the action with that in mind.

Sligo Rovers vs Derry City: Match Preview

Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers are struggling to halt what has become a hugely dramatic slide and their 1-0 defeat to Bohemians last weekend was their sixth straight loss in all competitions. Liam Buckley’s men had threatened to launch an unlikely title charge this term, though their recent regression means they are now looking over their shoulders instead.

Derry City

We tipped Derry in the double chance stakes against Dundalk last week and the Candystripes delivered the goods with an excellent 1-0 triumph over the Lilywhites – their third Premier Division victory on the spin. With three wins from their last four tests there, City have finally discovered a winning formula at the Brandywell and if their home form can continue to match their excellent away displays, Derry could turn into one of the division’s most formidable outfits.
