When the season started, Sligo Rovers were considered among the worst teams in the Irish Premier Division. However, after 18 rounds, they are seven points above the relegation playoff zone. Sligo Rovers have played solid lately, with only one loss in the last five matches. In the previous game, they won 2-1 on the road against Shelbourne. The home side finished with 68% ball possession and 13 shots on the goal, more than SligoRovers, but guests still recorded an important win. 

Drogheda are probably the worst team in the Irish football league. Currently, they are two points above Dundalk, the worst team in the table. Drogheda is on a poor run with three losses in a row. In the previous match, they lost 2-0 at home against Shamrock Rovers. The team's performance highlights several underlying issues that need addressing, suggesting that manager Kevin Doherty's side may be looking to bolster their squad during the upcoming summer transfer window to spark a turnaround in form.
