Reason For Sligo Rovers vs Shelbourne Predictions

  • Shels’ three away games this season have featured just four goals
  • Four of Sligo Rovers’ five matches have been under 2.5 goals
  • Both teams have scored in a combined one of 11 matches for Sligo and Shelbourne this season

It is likely Shelbourne and Sligo Rovers will be involved in a tight scrap at the Showgrounds, with Sligo relieved to get three vital points last weekend in Derry.

With Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe coming in, Sligo have a bigger goal threat now, but do not expect Shelbourne to embrace an expansive game plan here. They had to defend stoically against Finn Harps earlier this week, having just ten men for most of the game but still winning 1-0.

Their six matches this season have produced only nine goals and that is why we are backing under 2.5 goals.

This is a tough enough one to call between two quite evenly matched sides that tend to defend pretty well. It might be safest to bet unders, with Shels without Karl Sheppardlight enough on goals so far.

A draw would be a decent result for Ian Morris’ men, who have made an excellent start to life in the Premier Division and with both teams struggling for goals a bet on 0-0 is also advised. Sligo have failed to score in three of their five matches and Shels have scored just once in their last three matches.
