Portadown form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Premiership this season. Portadown have only managed 0 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses from their games here at Shamrock Park. Portadown are slowly digging their own grave here at Shamrock Park with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in ten attempts. The last victory here came in the Glenavon match.

Salley was the last player to score a league goal for Portadown and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Portadown haven't scored in 202 minutes.

In their previous game, the manager Tipton led his Portadown to a defeat in the Premiership match away at Ballymena United. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Shamrock Park. As you see from the result above, Portadown suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one.

Ahead of that match, Portadown lost 0-1 at home to Glenavon.

No one expects the home team to get anything from this game. It's not often a home team are such massive outsiders as in this game. We've searched our database for matches where Portadown had similar winning odds as today, and found four games. In these, the hosts won zero, drew one and lost three. Betting people looking at handicaps might be interested to know that Portadown lost zero similar games by at least two goals.

Portadown are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 11 goals in 10 games. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Portadown defense is not exactly impregnable. 18 goals conceded from 10 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Coleraine form and stats

3-3-4 is the win-draw-loss statistic for Coleraine in their Premiership matches away. Coleraine seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Coleraine play their second straight away game, having lost the previous one 1-2 to Ballymena United (placed 6th).

A loss against Glentoran was the result prior to that, in a home game.

Again, the away team are huge favourites in this match and any other result would be an upset. We checked our Tipsway database for earlier, recent games with Coleraine given similar win odds in an away game. This check revealed five matches with four wins as expected, zero draws and one surprise home win. The favourites won four of these games by at least two goals.

Coleraine has displayed an ability to score goals in away matches in the league this season, 17 goals from 10 games. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. 12 goals have been conceded by Coleraine in these games.
