Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Saturday, 15th July 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The Showgrounds.
Sligo Rovers will be hoping to bounce back after a demolishing 4-0 loss to Derry City this Saturday when they are going to host the rock-bottomed Drogheda United who have been completely out of rhythm in the most recent period.
The hosts dropped down to the ninth position after a poor run during which they claimed only a single win in nine matches.
The new manager Gerard Lytlle could likely lose his job in case of a yet another failure in the match of a great importance for both him (as a head coach=) and the team who would seriously compromise their elite class status with a potential defeat.
Seeing Pete Mahon still on Drogheda’s bench is kind of a miracle since the team scored no more than a single goal in last nine matches.
The Drogs are still only three points away from the safe zone in spite of a horrendous series of results, but there are just no signs of the light at the end of the tunnel for them according to the most recent displays.
Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United: Head to head
The hosts have been much more successful in the history of head to head encounters wining 24 and losing only 12 meetings with Drogheda.
The match from the first part of the season at Hunky Dorys Park ended without a winner as the teams shared a point by playing a 1-1 draw in late-April.
Sligo Rovers vs Drogheda United: Prediction
The match with Drogheda will be a terrific opportunity for Kieran Sadlier (who has seven goals to his name so far in the season) to bring back the form he had at the start of the campaign.
We doubt the hosts will fail to take advantage of a nice chance to make this a turning point of the season and we are going to back them to pick up the victory at 4/7 odds.
