Glenavon’s penultimate home game of the season sees the visit of neighbours Portadown for the second time this season in the Danske Bank Premiership. The last time the Ports came to Mourneview, a game featured live on Sky Sports, the game ended 2-2, Ronnie McFall’s side twice coming from behind.
The Ports won the other two games but Gary Hamilton is going into tomorrow night’s game (kick off 7:45pm) in a positive frame of mind. “We’re playing well at the moment and the two lads up front are a real goal threat so, although we know it will be a tough game as it always is with Portadown, we’ll approach the game with confidence,” Gary told us after Saturday’s 7-0 thrashing of Lisburn Distillery. “Barring any injuries I’ll be sticking with my policy of not changing a winning team, so I’ll definitely not be starting!”
Going into the post-split games McFall rested key players for the game with Ballymena United, with a vital Irish Cup semi final against Glentoran in mind. That tactic rather backfired with the Sky Blues winning 6-1 and the Glens going through to the final 1-0. On Satruday a goal by Stefan Lavery cancelled out a Gary Twigg effort to earn a point for Dungannon Swifts.
The special offer for school kids continues for all Glenavon’s remaining home games so primary school children accompanied by an adult will again be admitted for just £1.
We would again ask that anyone who has the best interests of Glenavon at heart, even if they haven’t been to a game for number of years, to make every effort to attend.
