Full-time result prediction: Derry City to Win
For our first prediction, we here at Football Ground Guide have gone with a win for Derry City. Derry are unbeaten in the League of Ireland since a 1-0 defeat to Shamrock Rovers towards the end of June giving them a run of seven games without defeat whereas Sligo Rovers are towards the bottom of the table and are struggling this season, with just one win from their previous six League of Ireland matches, that sole win coming against bottom side UCD last time out.
Total match goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
For our second prediction, we hear at Football Ground Guide believe that there will be 2.5 goals or more in this match between Sligo Rovers and Derry City.
