Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
After failing to win the last three league matches, Dundalk will be looking to get back on course when they face Sligo Rovers at Showgrounds. The Lilywhites came from two goals behind to share the spoils with Waterford at the weekend, and they are surely capable of beating Sligo Rovers behind closed doors. Dundalk are eager to keep their title hopes alive, and even though John Mountney is likely to miss the game with injury, away win should be considered.
The hosts aim to escape the danger zone in the Ireland Premier Division standings, but we do not believe that they are capable of matching the title-chasing side. In their last encounter in the Irish top flight Dundalk defeated Sligo Rovers 1-0, and you should bear in mind that the Lilywhites are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over the Bit o’ Red.
