Our prediction for this Ireland Premier Division match:
UCD Bowl will host Friday’s football game between UC Dublin and Sligo Rovers. UCD do not seem competitive at this level, with the team collecting only six points in total from possible 60 to date. Given their eight-game losing run and shaky defence, we do not believe that home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Sligo Rovers.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Irish top flight. Since Sligo will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting side. John Russell is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Shelbourne before the international break. In their last meeting at the venue Sligo Rovers defeated UCD 3-2.
