Match in Focus

Sligo Rovers v Limerick

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Sligo have won only one of their last six league fixtures
Expert verdict
Limerick slumped to a 3-0 defeat at bottom side Athlone Town in their last league outing, but a two-week break may have re-energised them and Sligo look short enough in the betting. The hosts have acquitted themselves well in Europa League qualifying but their league form has suffered and this match could be tighter than the market suggests.
