Sligo Rovers vs Cork City
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Saturday, 9 June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The Showgrounds (Sligo).
Sligo Rovers are going to take on Cork City in the 22nd round of Irish Premier Division on Saturday evening.
The hosts are having a disappointing season as they are positioned in the bottom half of the table. They are just one place and two points above the relegation playout spot, however Gerrard Lyttle’s side improved their game lately as they haven’t lost three times in a row. Although they are not too bad in the back, the main concern of the hosts is their poor attacking record as they managed to find the back of the oppositions’ net just 16 times this season.
On the other hand, cork City are in an excellent run of five straight victories which launched them to the top spot. They are going to fight the title battle against Dundalk and they are one point ahead of their opponents. Kieran Sadlier and the lads are one of the most efficient teams in the competition, while their defence allowed only 14 goals so far.

Cork City celebrated four times in their last five head to head clashes, from which two of them were booked when playing away from home. The visitors have been much more successful in the last five years. Their clashes have been moderate scoring ones in the past seasons.
Sligo Rovers vs Cork City: Predictions
Although the hosts started to play a bit better lately, Cork City are in a winning streak which they should be able to extend after this clash. The visitors are strong favourites in this one and they should be able to keep the top spot after this round.
The visitors have been involved in high scoring matches lately and they were very efficient, being able to score at least three goals four times in the last five matches. This one should be another efficient clash in which we should be able to see at least three goals.
