The Premiership match at The Oval on Monday sees home side Glentoran playing Carrick Rangers.
Glentoran go into this match coming off the back of a 1-1 Premiership draw against Ballymena United.
Over their prior 6 fixtures, Mick McDermott’s Glentoran have hit the target a total of 8 times resulting in an average number of goals per match of 1.33.
Heading into this fixture, Glentoran haven’t lost in the league to Carrick Rangers in their previous 8 matches. Quite a long unbeaten run against them.
In their previous fixture, Carrick Rangers drew 1-1 in the Premiership match with Larne.
Carrick Rangers have had no problems opening up opposition defences of late, scoring 7 goals in their previous 6 matches.
This doesn’t mask the fact that Carrick Rangers can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same clashes.
While that may be of interest, we will just have to wait and see if that pattern will continue on in this next game.
A look at their previous results shows us that Carrick Rangers:
- have not emerged victorious against Glentoran when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. Not the best of away records.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 8 league matches. A poor run.
