  • Venue: Tolka Park

Sligo Rovers will be looking for a win that could see them leave the bottom three in the Irish top flight when they travel this week to Tolka Park where they will take on Shelbourne.

The hosts are having a season to remember. Damien Duff’s sit on top of the tree with a six points advantage over second placed Derry City and that’s an overachievement for a side that finished outside the top three in each of their last three campaigns. The Reds enter this week’s game with an eighth game unbeaten streak and will be looking to extend that run.

Sligo Rovers meanwhile were expected to respond after finishing last season in the bottom three. The visitors have managed just 4 wins from their 17 games played so far, and that has left them just four points above the relegation places.

Betting Tips Shelbourne vs Sligo Rovers: Under 2.5 goals

Shelbourne are having a marvellous season, but there is still much to improve in the final third. Damien Duff's men have scored more than one goal in just two of their last ten matches. They kept five clean sheets in that spell, and bets on under 2.5 goals were won a record number of eight times.

The inability to score goals is one of the reasons why Sligo Rovers are in the bottom three. The Bit O'Red hit the back of the net twice against Derry City last time out, but that was a rare scenario as prior to that they had failed to score in consecutive games.

  • Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals
  • Shelbourne vs Sligo Rovers prediction: 2-0
