Sligo Rovers win

Sligo Rovers have been going from strength to strength in recent weeks. The team has particularly been more than just whipping boys, as they have picked up wins over competitors like Shamrock Rovers. Drogheda’s loss in the recent game might have taken the edge out of their game. Drogheda have not beaten Sligo Rovers in the last six attempts, although the last four meetings have all finished as stalemates.

Total goals over 2.5

In order to witness a high-scoring encounter between Sligo Rovers and Drogheda, one has to head back to 2015 when the former put four past Drogheda. Sligo Rovers, though, carry a much better form ahead of this encounter. They have been able to beat opponents while keeping things tight, but Drogheda are a team with goals in the ranks. Drogheda have actually scored more goals (27) than Sligo Rovers (20) this season.

Both teams to score – yes

Drogheda are a very good offence. They have demolished teams like Waterford and Longford Town in the last few weeks. Sligo Rovers are a much better defence, but that is unlikely to stop the visitors from creating chances. This match should witness goals at both ends, as both teams are carrying decent form.

Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda Utd: Match Preview

Sligo Rovers

Sligo Rovers are playing catch-up to Shamrock Rovers, who could have potentially jumped ahead of them in the table. Depending on the results of the game between Shamrock Rovers and Finn Harps, the mentality and mood around the Sligo Rovers camp could change. For the most part in recent weeks, manager Liam Buckley has kept things stable in the squad.

Drogheda Utd

Drogheda would be able to overtake St Patricks depending on favourable results. The club has had a setback with the loss against Derry City, but there has been a sizeable gap to this match for the team to reflect on their performance. Drogheda have largely relied on the offence to get them out of trouble or beat opponents with ease.
