Sligo Rovers Double Chance
Sligo Rovers are one of three clubs in the Premier Division yet to taste defeat on the road this season and the Bit O’Reds should be able to extend their four-match unbeaten streak on their travels at draw specialists Dundalk on Friday. The hosts have shared the spoils in six of their first nine matches of the fresh campaign and their inability to carve out victories should open the door for Sligo in the double chance market.
Under 2.5 Goals
The Irish Premier Division has been noticeably low on goals in the early exchanges of the 2022 campaign and both Dundalk and Sligo have played their part in keeping action levels at a minimum. 100% of Dundalk’s last six games and two of Sligo’s last three matches have produced under 2.5 goals, while the net didn’t rattle once when the sides clashed at The Showgrounds in March. With another tight contest likely, back the rematch to see two or fewer goals this week.
Correct Score: Dundalk 0-0 Sligo Rovers
Dundalk and Sligo played out an uneventful 0-0 draw when they last locked horns on March 5th and a similar outcome looks possible when the teams reconvene at Oriel Park on Friday. The Lilywhites have drawn six out of nine fixtures in total this term and half of those stalemates finished scoreless. Sligo meanwhile, have failed to score in two of their last three games and the factors suggest a small stake on a 0-0 draw this week could be worth considering.
Dundalk vs Sligo Rovers Match Preview and Team News
Dundalk have close to a full squad to pick from this week with midfielder John Mountney their own concern at present. Dundalk drew for the sixth time this season when they held St. Patrick’s Athletic to a 0-0 tie at Richmond Park last time out. Stephen O’Donnell would have been pleased with that point, though he needs to find a way to get his forwards firing fast if Dundalk are to make real progress.
Sligo’s top scorer Aidan Keena was forced to sit out last week’s clash with UCD, though Max Mata filled the breach brilliantly with two goals in Rovers’ 2-2 draw with UCD. A haul of 13 points from their first nine matches has Sligo in fourth spot in the Premier Division, though they are just a single point ahead of Friday’s opponents, Dundalk.
