Form Guide

It's safe to say it's been quite the European journey for Sligo Rovers so far. It took a penalty shootout at the Showgrounds to seperate The Bit O'Reds and Bala Town, with Ed McGinty's heroics from the penalty spot sealing a tie against SPFL side Motherwell.

Aidan Keena's first half strike sealed a valuable 1-0 away win in the first leg, before goals from Shane Blaney and Max Mata secured a 3-0 aggregate victory after a fantastic performance at The Shwogrounds.

There was a slight European hangover for John Russell's side at the weekend as they were knocked out of the FAI Cup in the first round after a 2-1 defeat to First Division high flyers Wexford FC.

Rovers are sitting in fifth place in the League of Ireland Premier Division standings after a mixed league campaign so far, but their Europa Conference League form is another story and a win over Viking will see them qualify for the playoff round.

Viking are sitting in fifth place in the Eliteserien, the top division of Norweigan football. After entering the competition in the last round, a 0-0 draw away to Sparta Praha was followed up with a 2-1 victory against the Czech side in the second leg.

It's certainly one of the biggest games in the Connacht club's history and if they can manage to bring something back to The Showgrounds ahead of the second leg, Sligo Rovers will feel confident of securing a place in the playoff round.
