Relegation Threatened Limerick are on 9th spot with 24 points, 5 points below Sligo Rovers. A win in this game will reduce the gap between them and Sligo to just 2 points and give them more hope of leaving the drop zone.

Limerick have managed just 6 wins this season, and have lost 16 games which is a very poor record. However, Sligo Rovers are not in a good form either though they are slightly better than Limerick with 8 wins and 14 defeats.

Sligo Rovers are out of the FAI Cup and League Cup and will now shift all their focus to the Premiership. They won their last league game away at Derry City making it 2 wins from their last 4 away games in the Premiership.

Now that they have no distractions, Sligo Rovers is expected to start getting results beginning with this game.
