St Patrick’s Athletic win
St Patrick’s need a victory to move level on points with Sligo Rovers. This will act as a huge motivation for the home team, who are aware that Liam Buckley’s team are in a decent spot when it comes to overall form. However, Sligo Rovers have just suffered a home defeat that will be a major dent to their confidence. Furthermore, Liam Buckley’s team has struggled big time in the head-to-head games against St Patrick’s with no wins since 2018.
Both teams to score – yes
Sligo Rovers have been one of the form teams in the division and they have scored at least a goal in the last eight games. This will be the biggest challenge for St Patrick’s, who have been unable to keep a clean sheet in seven. The two teams will be closely matched and both teams are expected to score.
Total goals over 2.5
St Patrick’s have been going through a disappointing sequence of results largely because their defence has not been solid enough. This will be a big encouragement for Sligo Rovers, who have been able to score in all their 2021 away games. This game should see goals at both ends and St Patrick’s pushing for a victory could lead to a high scoring game.
