Posted August 20th, 2021 | By: Tom Dunstan

Competition: Irish Premier Division

Market: Derry City double chance

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Two sides who will find the mood in their camps at a polar opposite, a high-flying Derry City will make the trip to Sligo Rovers on Saturday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Sligo Rovers might still find themselves battling it out at the top of the table, they are in the midst of what has become a woeful run of form. In their 22 Premier Divison matchups so far this season, they have recorded 11 wins, five draws and six defeats, scoring 27 and conceding 16 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 38, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat third in the standings and holding a four-point buffer from dropping out of the European places. However, as for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss away at Bohemians, Sligo Rovers are now in the midst of an extended six-match losing run across all formats. Also, along with drawing a blank in three of their last four fixtures, it should also be noted that the hosts have lost each of their last three home matchups on the spin.

As for the visitors, only continuing on what has been a hugely impressive purple patch Derry City have really skyrocketed their way up the top-flight standings. In their 24 Premier Division matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, seven draws and eight defeats, scoring 29 and conceding 28 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 34, they open this weekend’s fixtures knowing that victory on Saturday would move them within striking distance of the European spots. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up an eye-catching 1-0 win against Dundalk on home soil, Derry have won each of their last four competitive matchups on the spin. Also, winning each of their last three Premier Divison fixtures, and keeping a clean sheet in each of those victories, a Derry double chance appear at attractive odds here.
