Ballymena United vs Glentoran FC
Ballymena Utd is still passionate about topping the Northern Ireland League table ahead of match day 31. This time they acted as host to host Glentoran at the Showgrounds.
Ballymena Utd is currently 6 points adrift of Linfield as temporary leader after Saturday (9/3) holding a party of 0-4 at Coleraine headquarters. At that time Andy McGrory became the hero of victory through a donation hat-trick which was fulfilled by Adam Lecky’s goal. A new deadlock could break out after the referee Gareth McConaghie was sent off on 27 minutes.
The safari became the second win for Ballymena Utd after losing to Linfield in league competition and the Northern Ireland Cup, starting with a 2-1 score against Cliftonville. Of course they will not let this trend just stop, let alone the distance with the peak thinning.
Moving to the next camp, Glentoran had to be satisfied with the position 1-1 when entertaining Ards last weekend. In fact, the visitors had to play with 10 people before halftime, but the kids could only make a equalizing goal 20 minutes before dispersal.
Regarding tomorrow’s match, Glentoran brought an inconsistent record on the road after last February’s draw at Newry City, winning over Warrenpoint Town with the help of 2 red cards, then losing to Coleraine due to a red card. In addition, at the moment they are still stuck at number 8 on the standings due to inconsistent games throughout the season.
Last November, Ballymena Utd also played the same role when entertaining Glentoran 2-1. The winning goal was then scored by Tony Kane through the white spot which also helped Ballymena Utd wipe out 3 consecutive matches throughout 2018.
Our Prediction: Over 2.5
