The game between Sligo Rovers and St Patricks Athletic could be mired in inconsistency.

Sligo Rovers made a terrible start to the League Of Ireland Premier Division taking nine games to get their first win on the board. They subsequently went on two mini runs of winning three games in a row. But those runs both ended with 3-0 away defeats.

Pats fortunes have turned sour more recently. The Inchicore side have won just three of their last ten league games.  They may have taken their eye off the ball with the Europa League qualifiers coming over the horizon. Liam Buckley is sure to have been acutely aware of the €200,000 that was at stake for getting through the first qualifying round.

That money could go a long way to improving on what has been Pats’ worst season for quite a few years. It has been five years since they have finished outside of the top four. But by the time they kick off on Saturday they could find themselves in seventh place. By the time the game finishes they could conceivably be tied on points with ninth place Finn Harps.

They have goals in their favour with only the top two sides in the league having scored more than them this season. But the vast majority of those goals have come on their home patch even though they have picked up more points on the road.

Sligo, for their part, have been a solid and difficult team to beat at home. Cork City are the only side to concede less goals at home. Shamrock Rovers are the only team to win here back on the first game of the season.

It’s yet another difficult game to call but the stats are certainly pointing towards a game of few goals.
