The Top Two Predictions for UCD vs Sligo Rovers

UCD sit bottom of the Premier Division table but could move above Finn Harps on Friday 27th May if they beat Sligo Rovers and results elsewhere go in their favour. Visiting Sligo Rovers occupy 5th-place as things stand and will be hoping to close the gap between themselves and St Patrick's Atheltic by securing all 3pts in Dublin.

Sligo Rovers to Win

Sligo Rovers have won four of their last five games against UCD, including their last two trips to the UCD Bowl. The hosts have lost four of their last six league games, going down 7-1 against Derry City last month while Sligo Rovers returned to winning ways in midweek when they beat Derry City at home 2-1, so you can see why we're backing an away win on Friday.
