Sligo and Cork well matched

On Friday night, Sligo Rovers and Cork City have endured the definition of inconsistent campaigns so far this season in the Ireland Premier Division. The pair meet on Friday night at the Showgrounds, as both teams look to kick-start their league campaigns.

The home side are currently sixth place in the Irish top-flight. They have a major job on their hands to get back in the race for a European spot, as they are nine points behind Bohemians, who are currently in the last European qualification spot.

Sligo have been hard to beat of late in the Irish top-flight, as they have suffered just one defeat in nine league outings, with the only defeat being against league leaders Dundalk.

The problem the home side have had in recent games has been turning draws into wins, as they have drawn five of their last nine matches in the Irish top-flight.

Cork are currently eighth place in the table, but despite their lowly position are 13 points clear of ninth-place UCD, who occupy the relegation play-off in the Ireland Premier Division. An away win would actually move the visitors above the home side in the top-flight table.

Draws have been the name of the game for the home side at the Showgrounds in the Irish Premier League, as they have drawn four of their last five league matches on home soil.

Their recent league outings at home have been low-scoring, with four of their last five games producing under 2.5 goals.

Cork have won just two of their last eight matches on their travels in the league. Their last six games on their travels have produced under 2.5 goals.

Forebet predicts that Sligo’s recent run of home draws will continue, with this clash finishing in a goalless draw, which would not help either team’s chances of getting back into the race for the European spots.
