Derry City vs Sligo Rovers Predictions

  • Derry City have conceded the first goal in seven of their eight home games this season.
  • Sligo Rovers have scored in seven of their eight away Premier Division fixtures to date.
  • Both teams have scored in eight of the last ten Derry City matches.

Candystripes not rock solid at home

Derry City’s peculiar pattern of results continued on Friday when they extended their unbeaten streak to seven with a win at neighbours Finn Harps.

But while the Candystripes have been sweet on their travels with three straight victories, their home performances have been as painful as a trip to the dentist.

Ruaidhrí Higgins’ side are the only ones left in the Premier Division yet to take three points at home with five draws and three defeats on their record.

This is an opportunity to put that right against a slumping Sligo Rovers side that have been beaten twice since the league resumed earlier this month.

The Bit O’Red appear to be a streaky side that have gone from being the form horses prior to the mid-season break to completely unbackable now.

Their penchant for scoring goals on their travels remains, however, so we forecast another affair that sees both teams on the scoresheet this week,

Since Higgins took over at Brandywell, goals have been scored at both ends on a regular basis and this should be another game in the same mould.

But Derry City’s home form is only pointing to another draw in this one and a probable 1-1 outcome – just like three of their last seven results.
