CRUSADERS V CARRICK RANGERS

Crusaders prepare for this fixture after a 0-0 Premiership tied result vs Coleraine.

Under three goals per game were recorded in 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Crusaders have been involved. Breaking down the goal split in this period, their opponents scored an aggregate of 3 while Crusaders totted up 8. We will find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.

Heading into this fixture, Crusaders haven't been beaten in the league by Carrick Rangers in their previous 3 games.

After tasting defeat last time out to Larne in Premiership competition, Carrick Rangers will be hoping to turn things around here.

The only scorer from Carrick Rangers was David Cushley (32'). Tomas Cosgrove (38'), Ronan Hale (45') and David McDaid (85') scored for Larne.

The stats don’t lie, and Carrick Rangers have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, conceding 14 goals in total. Defensively, Carrick Rangers certainly have room for improvement.

Going into this contest, Carrick Rangers are without a win away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals

DUNGANNON V LINFIELD

Dungannon Swifts go into this fixture following a 2-2 Premiership drawn match against Warrenpoint Town.

For Dungannon Swifts, the goals were scored by Ben Gallagher (10') and Adam Glenny (75'). Gregory Moorhouse (30') and Alan O'Sullivan (90') scored for Warrenpoint Town.

Dungannon Swifts have not been in good attacking form of late. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 4 against opposition teams over the course of their previous six fixtures. In those games, Dungannon Swifts have also seen the number of goals scored against them total 14.

In the game prior to this, Linfield drew 1-1 in the Premiership tie with Glentoran.

The only name on the scoresheet from Linfield was Trai Hume (36'). Jay Donnelly (72') scored for Glentoran.

The overall average number of goals per game in that spell is a mere 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by The Blues equalling 1.33. Historical results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend shall continue on in this match.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
