The Irish Premier Division season is in full swing and our next preview features a clash between Derry City and Sligo Rovers as the betting tips continue at The Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Derry City Prediction – Can Derry extend unbeaten run?

A 6-match unbeaten sequence is not a bad way to prepare for this Friday night clash with Sligo Rovers as the hosts look to remain unbeaten in this encounter.

Recent wins collected against Finn Harps and Cork City along with 4 draws have made Derry City a hard team to beat in recent weeks.

The two wins have seen Derry City score 4 goals in each victory with 4-0 and 4-1 wins respectively, while also picking up points in draws.

Stalemates with Shamrock Rovers, Bohemians, Dundalk and UCD have helped keep Derry City in the hunt for a top three finish.

Five points separates Derry from 3rd placed Bohemians, but this deficit could be reduced to just 2 points before the weekend’s action.

Derry City possess a home record that stands at 5-3-3 17/10 and they’re unbeaten in their last 4 matches at their Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

The previous encounter at home against Sligo Rovers ended with a 2-0 win for Derry City.

Sligo Rovers Prediction – Can Sligo Rovers close gap on teams above?

The visitors also bring an unbeaten sequence into this Friday night clash away at Derry City with 3 matches being undefeated.

An emphatic 5-1 home win against second from bottom club, UCD, was followed up with points against Shamrock Rovers and Waterford.

These stalemates both ended in 0-0 draws, while away from home, Sligo Rovers have captured just 2 wins out of their last 10 matches.

These wins came in the shape of a 2-0 win at UCD and a 2-1 win at Bohemians have been rare highlights for the visitors.

However, 5 defeats at Shamrock Rovers, Derry City, St Patrick’s, Dundalk and Finn Harps show that Sligo are vulnerable on their travels.

An away record of 3-4-5 11/19 also includes Sligo Rovers failing to score in their last 3 away matches on the trot.

Indeed, 6 of Sligo Rovers’ 12 away matches have seen the visitors fail to hit the back of the net on the road.
