Derry City vs Sligo Rovers
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 19 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Brandywell Stadium (Derry).
Both teams have been struggling to dole out wins consistently, and it’s rightfully being reflected in the points-table. Derry at least can lay claim to avoiding losses, courtesy to their streak of draws, whereas the other one does not have that luxury – the reason being, their loss to practically the worst of the lot, Finn Harps.
On the road, the Rovers are a bit of a mess and will have to put with a lot this Friday, against Derry, considering the latter sees this tie important to cut down the lead of Bohemians in the third spot.
