Sligo Rovers Move Into Title Contention

The betting for the Premier Division has taken on a different complexion after Sligo Rovers hit the front following a contested winner in Tallaght on Monday night.

Romeo Parkes appeared to be in an offside position before he went to score a winning second half goal

…which was enough to see Liam Buckley’s side move one point clear of their opponents at the top of the table after 13 games.

We have now cut Sligo Rovers into 4/1 from 10/1 to be crowned champions for the first time in nine years, while back-to-back defeats within the space of four days for Shamrock Rovers have seen Stephen Bradley’s side eased to 4/7 from 1/4 to defend the title.

St. Pat’s have moved into 7/2 from 5/1 as they sit three points behind the new leaders after a 2-2 draw with Derry City at the Brandywell.
