Waterford FC vs Sligo Rovers Prediction
Even though the teams have nearly inched to the bottom of the league table in this season, they have not let down their attacking by any much. The guest has scored at least one goal per match while the counterparts have registered an average of 1.2 goals per match. Here, the team has not been shy in scoring and hence we can expect that the bout will produce goals at both ends.
As the clash takes part in the Waterford grounds, they do have an advantage over the traveling side being experienced with the ground. Besides that, they have been unbeaten at this venue for the past three encounters with Sligo Rovers before. Also, the Blues have more wins in their past five clashes. In contrast, the host is winless in the last five league home matches while Liam Buckley and his team have lost seven of their 16 trips on the road.
Henceforth, the chances of the host winning the three points are alive. However, their form at home in the league is pretty down in this season and hence it would be ideal to go with a double chance in the game.
