In what could prove to be another extremely cagey encounter, Derry City will welcome Sligo Rovers to Londonderry on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Derry gained plenty of plaudits after snatching a point off of runaway league leaders Dundalk a fortnight ago, Head Coach Declan Devine will be far from impressed by his sides’ most recent performance. Playing out a lackluster 0-0 draw against a UCD side that are destined for the drop this season, Derry have managed to pick up just a single victory since the end of May and their form in Londonderry is coming under growing scrutiny. Friday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last four matches on home soil, including a 2-1 loss against lower league Cliftonville last month.

As for the visitors, although Sligo may have managed to pinch a 1-0 win against English League one outfit Accrington Stanley earlier in the month, they too flattered to deceive last weekend. Playing out their own 0-0 draw against fellow relegation scrappers Waterford, Liam Buckley’s men have managed to record just a single Premier Division victory since the 23rd of May. A huge part of their recent issues has been their form in the final third. Sligo have managed to record a single goal in almost 300 minutes of action. With four of the previous five meetings between the two sides producing under 2.5 goals, including a very cagey 0-0 draw back in May, we’re backing another low scoring encounter on Friday night.
