Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: The Showgrounds.

Shamrock Rovers will be looking to keep the hot run of form going and build on the fine display from the last weekend’s commanding 4-1 win over Drogheda United.

The Hoops ware set to take on Sligo Rovers in the last match of the round in the top flight of the Irish football this Saturday at The Showgrounds.

Sligo Rovers

The hosts are nowhere near the performances they showed in the last term of Premier Division.

The team led by Dave Robertson is win-less in seven straight league outings with the 2-0 defeat to Bohemians being the latest of the failures.

On the bright side, only Dundalk and Cork City managed to pick up points from the visit to The Showgrounds in nine matches so far in the season.

Shamrock Rovers

The Hoops are 1/1 favourites, but we don’t see the value there knowing that they lost five of their last seven matches on the road.

The story is completely different when Stephen Bradley’s men play in front of their fans where they took five victories in last six matches including the mentioned drubbing of Drogheda United last Friday.

Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers: Head to head

Shamrock have been much more successful over the history as they won 31 out of 61 encounters with Sligo.

The Bit O’Red, however, came out victorious from their last H2H encounter at The Showground (3-2 in August last year).

Sligo Rovers vs Shamrock Rovers: Prediction

The visitors do enjoy a much better shape at the moment, but the value is absolutely with Sligo who are 8/11 to avoid a defeat.

Either way, we do expect to see both teams on the scoreline since none of them can be particularly proud of their defensive lines, while the draw might be the best of the longshots.
