Drogheda United vs Sligo Rovers
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 24 June 2022

Venue: Head in the Game Park.

Drogheda might be placed in the bottom tier of the table but lately they have been on a good run and have posted quite some points on the board in the process as well. Their immediate objective would be to put as much gap as they can above the relegation cut-off.

Meanwhile Sligo Rovers are going through an inconsistent stretch of results and particularly on the road they have been a mess lately. They are conceding goals in huge numbers, and by the looks of things it is expected that they are about to have a tough match-up this coming Friday.
