Sligo Rovers will welcome Longford Town to The Showgrounds for a matchday 12 fixture in Republic of Ireland Premier Division. The last meeting on 2nd April 2021 ended in a Sligo Rovers 1-0 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Sligo Rovers has won 4 matches, and Longford Town failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 2.57 goals, while both teams score 57% of the time.

Sligo Rovers's last game in the Republic of Ireland Premier Division against Waterford at home ended in a 3-0 win. Although Sligo Rovers played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. Sligo Rovers was dangerous in both halves and scored in the -1th, -1th and -1th minute.

Longford Town's recent game against Bohemians ended in a home 0-2 loss. Longford Town's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

So far, Sligo Rovers plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.22 points per away game on average compared to 1.50 points at home. Sligo Rovers's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 38% of home games.

Longford Town has picked up 1 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Longford Town wins 0.38 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Longford Town kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Sligo Rovers lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 38% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.

This season hasn't unfolded as planned, and Longford Town haven't tasted an away victory at all. The visitors have lost 63% of all games on the road while conceding on average 2.00 goals in the process.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Sligo Rovers wins on average 1.50 points per home game, compared to 0.38 points per away game for Longford Town. My prediction is Sligo Rovers to win.

Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 55% of Sligo Rovers's home and Longford Town's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
