Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
Shamrock Rovers will be aiming to retain top position in the standings when they face Sligo Rovers in the Premier League derby. The Hoops are eyeing their fifth home win of the season, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Bit O’Red. It has to be noted, though, that all Chris McCann, Ronan Finn, and Graham Burke are sidelined with injuries. Liam Buckley’s men have been in a splendid form of late, with the team winning each of their last three league fixtures.
Considering that Sligo Rovers will go for a win in Monday’s derby as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Greg Bolger returns from suspension, while David Cawley remains on the sidelines with a groin injury. Danny Kane faces the race against clock to be fit for the match, whereas Darren Collins is out of contention with an ankle problem.
