Bohs overrated so back Sligo.

IRELAND SLIGO ROVERS have not hit the headlines since Ger Lyttle took over but they are fancied to secure three vital points at Bohemians this evening, writes Johnny Ward.

They have become a hard side to beat, while Bohemians have again punched above the weight of their wage structure. They are a likeable side but there could be little between the teams.

Sligo should enjoy playing at Dalymount and having the chance to get the ball down, while Bohs are not all that strong at the back at times. It is a vital game for Rovers and they are capable of getting at least a draw, especially as Kieran Sadlier looks odds-on to create problems for the hosts.

Both teams to score in Buncrana looks a play at 10-11 with Derry and Cork likely to contest an enthralling encounter.

Cork are away and gone in the title race but Derry have lots to play for and it is hard to see the visitors shutting out the Candystripes, who are averaging more than two goals per home game.

Dundalk are coming to hand and should blitz Finn Harps, who have been at the end of a few trouncings against the Lilywhites.

With their best players all fit again, competition for places is fierce at Dundalk, and they should dominate from start to finish.
