Sligo hit the front on 23 minutes when former Shamrock winger Eoin Doyle rose to head home a Joseph Ndo corner.
It began to go wrong for Sligo on 37 minutes when key defender Gavin Peers was shown a straight red card by referee Richie Winter for a challenge on Billy Dennehy.
Rovers levelled on 54 minutes when Gary Twigg forced defender Alan Keane to head into his own net from Dennehy’s cross, though Twigg initially claimed the goal.
