Sligo Rovers vs Shelbourne Predictions

  • Sligo Rovers are unbeaten in four league games, winning each of their last two at home.
  • The visitors have gone three league games without a win.
  • Shelbourne have failed to even find the net in their last three outings.

Sligo Rovers seeking revenge

Sligo Rovers have already fallen to two League of Ireland defeats to newly-promoted Shelbourne this term, going down 1-0 at home in early April and 2-1 on the road one month later. But with new boss John Russell at the helm, last season’s third-placed finishers look reinvigorated, and will be confident of exacting their revenge at The Showgrounds on Saturday.

Having gone five games without a win, losing three, prior to the departure of Liam Buckley, Sligo have gone four without defeat since Russell took charge, including winning each of their last two home games. Those victories, which included a win over third-placed Derry City, represent a complete transformation for a team which had won just one of their previous seven on their own turf, and their newfound momentum should be enough to see them claim a win over the out-of-shape visitors.

Indeed, Shelbourne’s form has nosedived since a 2-0 win over UCD earlier this month, with former Chelsea wideman Damien Duff overseeing a three-match winless (and goalless) run. While Shelbourne’s solid start to the season has staved off any fears of a relegation battle, their their record of just three wins in nine away games does not bode well for a trip to a Sligo side benefitting from a new manager bounce.

Third time lucky for hosts

The hosts’ strong form since making a change in the dugout – particularly at home – makes backing them at a shade of odds against an attractive proposition.

Meanwhile, Shelbourne’s recent struggles in front of goal make a 2-0 home win appear a decent correct score prediction.
