Portadown vs Glentoran Prediction 08.02.2022

Portadown will welcome Glentoran to Shamrock Park for a matchday 26 fixture in Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership. The last meeting on 4th December 2021 ended in a Glentoran 3-1 win. Both sides have met twenty times in the most recent seasons. Portadown has won 4 matches, and Glentoran triumphed in 10. Recent outings average 3.00 goals, while both teams score 60% of the time.

Portadown’s latest fixture against Larne ended in an away 4-0 loss. I expected more from Portadown. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.

Glentoran’s recent game against Warrenpoint Town ended in a home 1-0 win. Glentoran dominated the game and deserved the win. Glentoran put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 39th minute.

So far, Portadown plays better on the road than at home. They win 0.54 points per away game on average compared to 0.50 points at home. Although Portadown is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 17% home clean sheets.

Glentoran has picked up 13 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Glentoran has collected 2.42 points on average per away game, compared to 2.00 at home.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Portadown has to improve results quickly. They are without a win in twelve home games. Portadown has won just 0% of home games. On average they score 0.92 goals and concede 1.58 per game. Glentoran won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Portadown wins on average 0.50 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Glentoran. My prediction is Glentoran to win.
