Preview: Sligo Rovers vs Bohs on Saturday

Sligo Rovers take on Bohemians in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division on Saturday night in The Showgrounds.

Rovers were beaten 3-0 last week against Derry City and are looking to respond, with the last home game 0-0 with Waterford.

Ronan Murray (calf) and Johnny Dunleavy (knee) are doubtful and will be checked pre-game.

Niall Morahan returns from international duty and needs to be assessed. Niall Watson has received clearance.

Liam Buckley said:

“Derry played quite well last week. Our formation didn’t work and we didn’t perform over 90 minutes. We’d be disappointed, it is what it is, we get on with it. We have to make sure we apply ourselves in every game left, we go into this game with a new mindset and looking to find a winning performance. 

“We could go both ways in the table, up or down, so there’s an incentive of course. We didn’t perform well enough last week but we’ve shown previously we can get to a much better level. There’s a lot left for us in the season, we’ve got the Cup and our league position is up in the air so I expect that the group to be thinking about our future and their future. 

“We have to have a regular standard of performance and for much of the season consistency has been a problem. In saying that our injury profile has been terrible and we’ve been making a lot of changes because of it. 

“Every game we want to try to win and I want everyone thinking like that because if we don’t think like that we won’t achieve what we want here.

“We’ve gone to Bohs and won and they did it here and I don’t think there is much between any side outside of the top two. We want to go out and win the game with a much better performance.”
