Cork City FC vs Sligo Rovers by TFB

Cork City play Sligo Rovers at Turner's Cross hoping to get back to winning ways after being pegged back late on against Bohemians.


Cork are already approaching a must win situation if they are to realise their ultimate goal of being crowned Premier Division champions. The ever impressive Dundalk, last season's champions, are already 6 points clear at the top after an 8-1 win against the hapless Bray Wanderers. Cork, 7 points adrift in 3rd place will be hoping to cut the gap to 4 points before Dundalk next take to the field on Saturday.


The Turner's Cross is known as a fortress as Cork are probably the best supported team in the Irish league. This is largely backed up by their excellent home record which sees only 2 home defeats in their last 30 matches, both defeats coming against Dundalk!


Cork will likely be without midfielder Billy Dennehy who is a big player for the home side. Dennehy left the field with concussion in their 1-1 draws against Bohemians.


The away side have had a poor start to the season and currently lie in 9th position. They have only enjoyed 3 away wins in the last 12 months with all 3 being against the lower sides in Ireland, Drogheda, Bray and Galway.


Sligo, winless in 4, suffered a disappointing 1-1 draw against bottom club Limerick. This result came after a 3-0 away defeat to St Patrick's, a side who are on a similar level to Cork.


A point of any kind would be a great result for Sligo against one of the league's strongest home sides.
