Dundalk vs Sligo Rovers Match Preview
Sligo Rovers beat Dundalk in front of the home fans in April and it obviously served as a great confidence booster, as Liam Buckley’s men suffered just one loss in nine outings since – now travelling to Oriel Park on the back of a 1-2 win at Bohemians and a streak of three wins and two draws in last five games.
The Bit o’ Red have been scoring goals on the regular and having shown off as tough rivals in recent head-to-head clashes too, we’ll now surely see them very motivated to cause an upset on Friday evening too.
Still, Dundalk have been just furious lately and we’ve seen them earn ten wins and a draw in the last 11 outings, with only Derry City snatching a 2-2 draw at this ground along the way. Interestingly, they have been conceding more goals in front of the home fans and this could be more worrying despite a great streak.
Lilywhites three consecutive clean sheets on the road over the past month but have also done so just once in five home outings along the way, which has us hoping to another exciting occasion and a high-scoring contest on the day.
We’ll stick with Dundalk to finally beat Sligo Rovers and bag important points and we feel we’re in for goals, as we go for a Home win and Over 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with Paddy Power. We’ve seen them regularly enjoy such clashes and this would be nothing but more of the same.
We’ve seen Sligo Rovers pick it up lately and we don’t feel they’ll go without shots fired, as we now stick with a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/5 with Paddy Power. Dundalk haven’t really been as confident at the back here and we now hope to see the visitors find the net as well.
