Cork City host Sligo Rovers at Turners Cross on the SSE Airtricity League matchday 17.
Cork City turned in a greatest performance in the Europa League in their history this summer as they managed to kick out two opponents. First, they triumphed over Northern Irish Linfield (2:1 on agg) and then pasted through Hacken (2:1 on agg). Unfortunately for the hosts, they were beaten by Genk in the third qualifying round (1:3 on agg). Cork City are currently 2nd in the tables with 40 points earned and 28:6 goal difference. They are right behind leading Dundalk. We should mention Cork City earned 22 points in their last 8 home games in the league (18:3 goal difference).

Sligo Rovers are currently on rather impressive run as they remained unbeaten in 4 consecutive matches. The visitors are 7th in the standings at the moment with 25 points earned and 18:21 goal difference. We should say Sligo Rovers have been struggling to earn points on the road as they won only 2 of their last 9 away matches with 7:16 goal difference.
Cork City remained unbeaten in their last 8 head-to-heads against Sligo Rovers as they recorded 3 wins and 5 draws. It seems the hosts will extend their successful run against Sligo Rovers and keep chasing Dundalk in the championship race.
Prediction for the match: Cork City to win.
