DUNGANNON V CRUSADERS
The only name on the scoresheet from Dungannon Swifts was Ryan Mayse (14', 88').
Dungannon Swifts have been conceding pretty frequently of late, although they’ve also done enough to convert their own chances into goals. Over their last 6 matches, Dungannon Swifts have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those matches.
Crusaders will come into the match after a 0-1 Premiership win vs Ballymena United in their last fixture.

A run of resolute displays by the Crusaders defensive unit has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their previous 6 outings in total. In that time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 10. We will just have to see if that trend will be sustained in this game.
