Bohemians - Sligo Rovers Betting Preview: Expect goals at both ends at Dalymount Park

The hosts have found a goalscoring touch since replacing their coach and our tipster expects them to give as good as they get against the champions
Sligo Rovers travel to Bohemians on Saturday, hoping to keep themselves in the running for the defence of their Premier Division title.

Ian Baraclough’s men currently trail league leaders St Patrick’s Athletic by seven points with seven games left to play and are favourites to maintain the pressure with a win at 1/2 (1.50) with Paddy Power.

The hosts have pulled themselves out of the relegation zone after earning themselves a surprising four points from two the last games against Shamrock Rovers and St Pat’s and are available at odds of 5/1 (6.00) to complete their best run of the season with victory at Dalymount Park.

The pair played out a 0-0 draw when they met at the Showgrounds back in May and you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them sharing the spoils once again in this encounter.

While their home record compares favourably to any other side in the league, the Bit o’ Red have slightly lost their way on the road recently, winning just one and losing four of their last six away games in all competitions.

This malaise is mainly due to some underwhelming defensive performances, as the champions have now gone six games without keeping a clean sheet on their travels, conceding in each of their last four league away fixtures.

Although finding the back of the net has been a real problem for the Gypsies this season, particularly at home, they have now scored in five of the six matches since Owen Heary took over as caretaker manager from the sacked Aaron Callaghan, and have not been denied in any of their last four games in front of their own fans.

With confidence as high among the Bohemians players as it has been all season, odds of 10/11 (1.91) look particularly inviting on them making sure there are goals at both ends on Saturday, in a bet that would have paid out in each of their last four at home.
