Rovers v Harps: Saturday

 

Sligo Rovers are back at The Showgrounds Saturday night for the second of three consecutive home fixtures.

Finn Harps will be the next visitors for a game with the usual 7:45pm kick-off time.

It follows a 2-1 win last Saturday when Galway United visited for a Connacht Derby. Raff Cretaro continued his great form by taking himself to 10 goals for the season with an equaliser as the game entered the last 10 minutes.

Fellow striker Achille Campion then struck deep into stoppage time to grab the game’s winner.

It was the second home game in a row where the Bit o’Red have come back from a deficit to win after doing so against Shamrock Rovers.

It all means rovers are now on a 12-game unbeaten stretch in home games since the only defeat of the year occurred in early March.

Rovers are yet to beat Finn Harps this season on their return to the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division with a draw five months ago in The Showgrounds and a 3-0 loss away from home in June.

Since then Rovers have lost just one league game in nine played to move up to the current position of fifth in the table.

This weekend Rovers will be without Raff Cretaro and also captain Craig Roddan as they serve suspensions.

The night will serve as night where we work with our Partner Charity, Sligo Cancer support Centre, in a fundraising initiative. See here for more.

Tickets for the match will be on sale at the gate at our usual prices:

Adult - €15

Student/OAP - €10

Kids under 12 (with adult) - €5
