Derry City’s good form continues to astound particularly at home with five wins from five in all competitions.

Most impressively they have conceded a solitary goal in those five games with all but Galway Utd failing to breach Derry’s defensive walls. Cork City, Shamrock Rovers, Bohemians and Friday’s visitors Sligo Rovers have all come and gone to think again.

Their defensive fortitude has been a key ingredient that Kenny Shiels has mixed into the pot but they have also leaned heavily on the six goals scored by Rory Patterson. Barry McNamee is earning rave reviews in an advanced playmaker role with Keith Ward also putting his personal injury nightmares far behind him.

But it’s their team spirit that has carried them to within a win of the top of the table. Late goals at Wexford and at home to Galway have exemplified that and coming back from a goal down early doors at Dundalk hammers home the point.

Not many teams are going to come to The Brandywell and take anything away. Two of the countries top sides have already left with nothing and Sligo Rovers themselves lost 2-0 in the League Cup barely a week ago.

While Sligo had been looking better in the previous few games they have still scored just the one goal on the road all season. Derry’s League Cup side had plenty of changes about it and Sligo made just the one change so a victory of that magnitude could be considered somewhat surprising.

Despite Sligo Rovers getting their first win on board since then the prices on a home victory this weekend are also of a surprising nature.

Derry City v Sligo Rovers Betting Preview Best Betting Odds

The bookies have priced Derry City at odds against again this week with Marathon Bet offering 2.15 (23/20) on the home win. Sligo Rovers can be backed at a high price of 3.88 (23/8) also with Marathon Bet while the draw is best priced with bet365 at 3.3 (23/10).

A Derry City Win To Nil wouldn’t knock the socks off too many here either and that can be backed at 3.3 (23/10) with Paddy Power. That inevitably takes the shine off the odds against price of 2.1 (11/10) from Coral and Betfair for both teams to score.

For three or more goals you can get as high as 2.38 (11/8) with Marathon Bet and on price alone that has reason to appeal. But just like last week it looks like there is no getting away from the value on a home win here.
