UCD - Sligo Rovers
Sligo Rovers are huge favorites in this match and it is quite normal. UCD are at the bottom of the table with 18 points, meaning they are the worst side in the Premier League. So, why I expect to remain unbeaten? For three reasons:
1. UCD played solid in the last round and stayed unbeaten against St. Patricks. The match finished with a goalless draw.
2. The guests are handicapped in this match as Dante Leverock and Sam Warde are suspended. How important they are? Well, defender Dante Leverock has played 22 games and has scored two goals, while midfielder Sam Warde has played 20 games and has scored one goal. In addition, while Johnny Dunleavy (21 games played, one goal) is out with a foot problem.
3. The home advantage. The match will be played at UCD Bowl in Dublin and I expect the home fans to give support to their players.
