Derry should prove too strong for bottom club Sligo

Derry City resume their 2020 campaign behind closed doors at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium on Friday evening, where Declan Devine’s Candystripes look favourites to claim three points against bottom club Sligo Rovers.

City endured a rocky start to the new season before it was unexpectedly curtailed, though their results at home, where they took four points from six against Finn Harps and Bohemians, showed promise.

Bottom club Sligo meanwhile, were reeling from four defeats on the bounce in the opening weeks of the new term, and Rovers’ less than robust rearguard conceded two or more goals in the final trio of those setbacks.

Derry, targeting their third win on the spin over Sligo, will look to attacking pair Stephen Mallon and Walter Figueira to punish their visitor’s porous backline on Friday, and the host’s superior firepower makes them worth backing in the over 1.5 team goals market, while our correct score prediction forecasts a 2-0 City win.

Sligo failed to register in each of their first to away assignments of the season before the enforced break in play, and we don’t anticipate Rovers’ attacking output on the road improving on Friday evening.
