Irish Premier Division: Dundalk- Sligo Rovers
Hosts have won 4/4 without conceding, Sligo are yet to win and three of those four starts have come at home, but on the plus side they have at least scored in every game. They arrive claiming to be looking for the win , but will probably need to score a couple of goals at least to do so, maybe to even claim a point, given that they are poor defensively and remain without goalkeeper Richard Brush who had only recently forced his way back into the team, center back Jeff Henderson ( 40% win record when he plays, 27% in his absence , over the last two seasons) and midfielder John Russell ( conceded two or more in 6 of the last 9 he has sat out). Hosts have an almost full squad to pick from and will be looking to celebrate head coach Stephen Kenney's 100th game in charge with a win, they have scored six in the last two home games against Rovers, but in truth, I do not think the gap between these two is quite as big as their respective starts to the campaign suggest. I definitely expect to see goals and the last 20 h2h meetings have averaged 2.75 goals, last three Sigo games have all produced two or more first half goals . New visiting boss Owen Heary has a decent squad at his disposal and his team has played better than results suggest, they have been very offensive minded, especially in their sole away start, a 3-2 defeat at Drogheda which they could have won 5-2, were in not for the home keeper putting in a MOTM dispaly and I see this as a potential upset, However, I will suggest 1.25 units "over" 1 goals first half betting 2.02 asian line /Sportmarket and/or 1.25 units "over" 2.5 goals 2.11 asian line/Sportmarket.
