The hosts began the defense of their title in an excellent way, as Dundalk F.C. won the Super Cup after a 2-1 victory over St. Patrick’s Atheltic F.C. at the end of February (Dundalk F.C. – St. Patrick’s Atheltic F.C. 2-1 on 28.02.2015) and remains the only team without a single mistake after the first four rounds in the Premier Division (4-0-0 8-0).
The visitors, on the other hand, have problems at the start of the new season in this league (0-2-2 5-7), which was actually expected, considering the fact, that the club was left by some important players during the break – Gary Rogers (goalkeeper), Seamus Conneely (defender), Evan McMillan (defender), Paul O’ Conor (midfielder), Danny North (striker), etc.
Sligo Rovers F.C. comes from a 1-2 defeat at home against Shamrock Rovers F.C. on Tuesday and I really doubt, that Rovers will manage to win something from this clash.
An interesting fact is, that the hosts have won five of the previous six official matches between these two teams (5-1-0 11-1), including each of their last two meetings at this stadium (Dundalk F.C. – Sligo Rovers F.C. 3-0 on 23.05.2014 ; Dundalk F.C. – Sligo Rovers F.C. 3-0 on 06.06.2014).
20:35 Dundalk – Sligo Rovers
