Sligo Rovers – Drogheda United
Sligo Rovers welcomes Drogheda United in a game from the 22th round of the Ireland’s Premier Division. The match is going to be played on Saturday night.
Both teams are currently in the relegation zone of the Premier Division, with Drogheda’s situation being a little bit worst than Sligo Rovers’.
Drogheda United are currently stuck on the last 12th place of the league, having won just 17 points from 21 games played. In the last five matches they have won just one point, losing four games in a row.
Their goal difference explains a lot their position in the table. They have scored just 14 goals so far and conceded 42.
Sligo Rovers meanwhile are 10th in the league standings, also being in the relegation zone. But if they win even one point from the game with Drogheda, they will move to 9th place and they will escape the dangerous zone.
In their last five games Sligo Rovers won one game, drew in two and lost two. It’s an unconsistent performance, but it’s still much better than the form which Drogheda United are showing us.
In their last game Sligo Rovers lost with 0-4 against Derry City, but before that they managed to beat Shamrock Rovers at home with 1-0.
As for Drogheda United, they are in a terrible run of four consecutive losses. For the last time they played against Finn Harps at home and suffered a 0-2 defeat in front of their own fans. If they do not improve their form very soon, it’s going to be absolutely impossible for them to survive and keep their place in the elite division.
Based on form and performance, Sligo Rovers are the heavy favourites to win the game. Maybe even with some difference. Are you ready to bet on them?
