Venue: Showgrounds

With just a few games remaining for the season to finish St. Patrick’s Athletic have a chance to jump to the third spot on the table. They will travel to Showgrounds to go head-to-head with Sligo Rovers for the final time in this current campaign.

This month the host ended their two-game losing streak as they defeated UCD by 2-0. However, they have not won any game since that victory.

In their last outing, they played a goalless draw against Derry City. The goalkeeper played a very challenging game as he thwarted Derry’s eight shots on goal.

Shamrock Rovers prevented St. Patrick from reaching third place as they defeated them 4-1 last time. Tim Clancy’s game plan was rash as the team received four yellow cards including goalkeeper Danny Rogers.

To make matters worse Anthony Breslin received a red card with fifteen minutes remaining.

Moreover, both teams are separated by twelve points on the table ahead of this fixture. This clearly shows that the visitors have had a great season all year.

Sligo’s home form is looking fragile as they are winless in three of their last four home fixtures. This is something John Russell has to improve on.
