St. Patricks Athletic vs Sligo Rovers: Preview and Predictions

St. Patricks Athletic vs Sligo Rovers
Republic of Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Monday, 19 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Richmond Park (Dublin).

St. Patrick’s Athletic and Sligo Rovers will face each other in the 7th round of Irish Premier Division on Monday afternoon. Both sides have some troubles at the start of the season and are searching for the winning streak.

Home side haven’t improved their game in compare to the last season and they have booked only two wins in six rounds played so far. They are finding it hard to score more frequently and Liam Buckley’s guys managed to find the net only five times. Luckily enough for them, the defence is keeping them into the game, but they need to improve their work in the final third urgently. St. Patrick’s Athletic played two times in front of their fans and they managed to win only a point against last season’s runners-up. If they want to stay out of the trouble, they need to start booking good results at least when playing at home pitch.

Sligo Rovers are having the exact same start of the season as their rivals and they’ve also won seven points. unlike their opposition, they were involved in more efficient clashes and although they have been pretty good in the front, their defence allowed too many goals. Adam Morgan has been in a fine form and he managed to find the net four times. The visitors haven’t tasted a defeat in their first two trips of the season where they managed to win four points. Last season they finished only one spot above the red line, and this one they should od their best to secure their place in the top flight much earlier.

St. Patrick’s Athletic v Sligo Rovers: Head-to-head

In the last four occasions these two sides played draw matches and the result in the last three was 1-1. Sligo Rovers managed to celebrate a win two times in the last eight games, and all the others ended with a draw. Their head to head clashes haven’t been so efficient lately and the crowd is usually unable to see more than two goals.

St. Patrick’s Athletic v Sligo Rovers: Prediction

We are going to follow the tradition of their clashes and this one can end with another draw.

Home side is playing pretty tight this season and they should be in commanding position is terms of dictating the tempo of the match. This one should stay under 2.5 margin.
