Sligo Rovers Double Chance

Sligo Rovers collected four points from their last two meetings with Shamrock Rovers and having just rediscovered their winning touch in the Premier Division, we’re backing The Bit O’Red to avoid defeat against The Hoops again on Saturday. Sligo won each of their last two matches at The Showgrounds against St. Patrick’s Athletic and Dundalk and with their confidence restored, they can secure another positive result against the league leaders.

Under 2.5 Goals

Recent meetings between Sligo and Shamrock Rovers have been keenly contested affairs that were decided by slender margins. Just three goals hit the net in their last two encounters combined and under 2.5 goals landed on each occasion. Just a single effort was notched when the teams last met in May (1-0 Sligo) and the pattern of low-scoring tussles between the sides opens up an interesting avenue in the under 2.5 stakes again on Saturday.

Half Time Result: Draw

Sligo have been the Irish Premier Division’s first-half draw specialists this term and incredibly, a full 18 of their 26 fixtures in the competition so far have been all square at the interval. Sligo and Shamrock Rovers were level at the break in each of their last two meetings and we’re tipping the same outcome to unfold at The Showgrounds this weekend.

Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers: Match Preview

Sligo Rovers Team News

Sligo Rovers have very few injury worries to deal with ahead of Saturday’s showpiece fixture against Shamrock Rovers and manager Liam Buckley will want to keep the same set of players together that performed so well in the club’s last two home matches. That would mean that striker Walter Figueira would have to be content with a spot on the bench for the third game in a row.

Shamrock Rovers Team News

Defenders Sean Hoare and Sean Kavanagh are rated as doubtful for Saturday's game, though both players are in with a shot at making the matchday squad. Rovers snapped a four-game losing streak in all competitions with a timely 2-0 victory at home to Waterford last week, though the champions still look a little flat in the final third and they needed a brace from midfielder Danny Mandroiu to bag the points against The Blues.
