Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Derry City will be looking to restart the season in style when they host Sligo Rovers at their Brandywell Stadium on Friday evening. The Candystripes aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Waterford, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in their first game after the coronavirus football break. Derry City are eyeing their second home win of the season as they defeated Bohemians 2-0 before the layoff.
Sligo Rovers, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering a loss in each of their first four league fixtures. The Bit o’ Red have yet to find the net on the road, and even though there will be no spectators in Friday’s showdown, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Declan Devine’s troops this time out.
