Cork City vs Sligo Rovers
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 14 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Turners Cross (Cork).

Winless in their last three fixtures, Cork City haven’t been at their best in the campaign this season. They are stuck at rock bottom of the table picking up just 4 points from the 7 fixtures until now. Their previous encounter was on the road and they shared the spoils in that goalless encounter with Waterford in the schedule.

The Rebel Army has only one win in their 7 league appearances so far this season, and that lone win came at home. But losing the remaining two fixtures at home has been a letdown for the home team.

On the other hand, after two consecutive losses on the road, Sligo could finally win their previous away fixture in the campaign. Sligo Rovers is one game behind Cork City but has a two-point lead over the host in the table.

The Bit o’ Red is on a two-game winning streak in the campaign, following a 2-1 win at home against Shelbourne in the previous league clash.

Cork City vs Sligo Rovers Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Two of their recent three fixtures have ended in a draw.
  • Both teams have scored in four of the last five fixtures.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 2-4 away win for Sligo Rovers.
  • The host has recorded three of the last five overall wins.

Cork City vs Sligo Rovers Prediction

Cork City has been dropping points regularly, and just one win in their recent five league clashes in the league is not intimidating for the visiting side. So, we can expect only a couple of goals in the clash.

Sligo Rovers will come in hot with a double win in their schedule. The sudden change in form after three consecutive losses will probably improve the morale of the players prior to the game.

Besides, The Bit o’ Red has been undefeated in their recent three h2h visits against the host. The draw no bet over Sligo Rovers will thus probably be the best bet for the punters.
