After three games we know a little more about the qualities of Sligo Rovers and Shamrock Rovers in this fresh Premier Division season. Read our match preview!

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.

Sligo Rovers form and stats

A Premier Division draw at home so far for Sligo Rovers. Last season their home statistics were 6 wins, 0 draws and 3 defeats from 9 matches.

Happy days for Rovers in their previous game, a Premier Division match away at Longford Town (placed 4th) that ended with a 1-0 victory. A strong away win before that one, visiting Waterford United and winning 2-1.

At The Showgrounds, Sligo Rovers has the goal stats of 1-1 (for/against) from 1 league fixture.

Shamrock Rovers form and stats

Shamrock won their last game, 2-1 versus Dundalk played at home. Preceding that match was the 1-1 draw at home vs St Patrick's.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager S. Bradley when D. Watts scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 64th minute.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Shamrock Rovers manager S. Bradley as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Derry City.

Head 2 Head

Sligo Rovers-Shamrock Rovers H2H statistics last ten meetings regardless of arena: Sligo Rovers two wins, Shamrock Rovers five wins, three draws. four of these ten matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
