15-07-23 Daily Football Predictions : Sligo Rovers vs Cork City

Betting Tips

The two bottom-of-the-table teams, Sligo Rovers and Cork City, will face off in a football match on Saturday at Showgrounds. Sligo hopes to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Derry City by winning at home for the sixth time this season, but the game won’t be easy for the hosts.  On the other side, Cork City is keen to leave the danger area.

Sligo Rovers vs Cork City

Sligo finished fifth last year, so they probably did not anticipate being in a relegation fight this year. However, the fact that they have only collected seven points from their previous 10 games has put them in real danger.

The Bit O’Red impressively defeated Motherwell in the second qualifying round of the Europa Conference League last season, although they were ultimately defeated by Norwegian team Viking FK at the penultimate hurdle.

The 38-year-old John Russell, who currently manages the team and played 130 league games for them over three different playing stints, would have been extremely disappointed by his team’s latest loss to University College Dublin, who have only picked up nine points all season.

Sligo lost to Derry City in their most recent game, which allowed Cork and Drogheda United to each move a point closer to them in the standings after Sligo recovered with an important victory over Bohemians

By defeating their opponents on Saturday, Cork would not only move even with their opponents in the standings but also out of the relegation zone should Drogheda lose to the bottom-of-the-table UCD.

During a four-game winning streak, Cork defeated crucial relegation opponents Sligo and Drogheda. Since then, they have lost two and drawn two of their four games, including a stunning road point against second-place St. Patrick’s Athletic last time out.

Verdict

This game has a high possibility of ending in a draw. In previous years, the majority of the games played between these teams were draws.

However, Sligo Rovers have recently put up some strong home performances, and we believe they may actually have a chance. Cork City might present a less difficult challenge after victories against Bohemians and Derry in the last three home games.

The last time out, Sligo Rovers suffered their fourth loss in their previous six Irish Premier Division games, and they may not be able to take advantage of their home-field advantage when they play Cork City on Saturday.

Both teams have a chance to score at The Showgrounds despite the hosts’ decent recent offensive play, which has come at the sacrifice of defensive consistency. In each of Rovers’ last four games, both teams scored, and in 11 home games this season, they have only kept one clean sheet while scoring seven times themselves.
