Portadown form and stats

With 0 Premiership wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats from their home games, Portadown are certainly not brimming with confidence. With seven home Premiership games in a row without a win, the Portadown fans could feel they are not getting value for their money. It remains to be seen whether this unfortunate streak, which started after the Glenavon game long ago, can be stopped today.

Portadown are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 2-4 away versus Dungannon Swifts. As you can tell by the result above, the goals flowed freely in the previous game and the stadium rocked. Could there be another goal fest today?

Before that, Portadown drew at home versus Carrick Rangers.

The manager M. Tipton will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Crusaders in only three days.

Portadown are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 8 goals in 7 games. Portadown are struggling defensively, conceding on average more than two goals per home game (14 from 7 played).
