Shelbourne vs Sligo Rovers – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Shelbourne have lost four of their last five league assignments ahead of their clash with Sligo Rovers in the capital on Friday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Sligo Rovers Draw no Bet

Shelbourne have found the going tough in the Premier Division since their promotion and ahead of Friday’s clash with Sligo Rovers, Damien Duff’s side hold the league’s worst home record having claimed just one point from 18 at Tolka Park so far. Sligo meanwhile, have lost just once in five assignments and in-form Rovers are worth siding with on Friday with the added insurance offered by a stake on the visitors in the draw no bet market.

Both teams to Score

Both Shelbourne and Sligo Rovers have been reliable performers in the both teams to score arena in recent weeks and with both defences unlikely to keep a clean sheet on Friday, we recommend sticking to the same market. BTTS has landed in four of Shels’ and Sligo’s last five matches respectively and we’re tipping that pattern to continue in Dublin this week.

First Team to Score – Sligo Rovers

Shelbourne have endured a rotten time at Tolka Park this season where they have lost five and drawn one of their six fixtures since the start of the new Premier Division campaign. Incredibly, Shels have slipped behind in 100% of their matches on home soil since their promotion and their nasty habit of conceding first can be taken advantage of in the markets this week by backing Rovers to get their noses in front with the game’s opening effort.

Shelbourne vs Sligo Rovers Match Preview and Team News

Shelbourne

Damien Duff will be without injured midfielders David Toure and Sean McSweeney on Friday. Shelbourne were beaten by second from bottom Finn Harps last time out in what felt like a significant result. While the season is still in its infancy, that defeat suggested Shels should be ranked as one of the division’s prime relegation candidates.

Sligo Rovers

Max Mata is hoping to shake off a knock in time to play on Friday, though midfielder Garry Buckley will miss out through suspension. Buckley was sent off late on in Rovers’ impressive 1-1 draw at home to current Premier Division champions Shamrock Rovers last week. Sligo are in fourth spot ahead of the league’s latest round of fixtures.
