Carrick Rangers form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Carrick Rangers, who have the fewest scored goals (7) in Premiership, so far with only 0 points returning home. The records show 0-0-6 (win-draw-lose). Carrick Rangers have been very modest guests so far, leaving with zero points in all their 6 away matches played so far in the Premiership. With the Carrick losing streak of six defeats in a row, regardless of arena, optimism is low and sinking. A depressing six defeats in a row for Carrick in their away games. Unhappy days, as the last time they avoided a loss on the road was versus Linfield.

Carrick aren't clicking offensively as they have gone 366 league minutes without a goal. L. Anderson was the last player to find the net.

Carrick failed to get anything from their last game, a Premiership home match vs Ballymena United (placed 5th) that ended with defeat 0-2. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Glentoran wasn't a success with a 0-2 loss.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Carrick manager N. Currie as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Dungannon Swifts.

Carrick Rangers are seemingly not capable of scoring regularly on their travels in the league. They have only managed 1 goal from 6 away games. There are big problems for the Carrick Rangers defense as they have conceded 21 goals in 6 away games.
