Glentoran come up against away team Coleraine at The Oval in the Premiership match on Tuesday.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Glentoran v Coleraine are shown on this page - as well as up-to-date odds.
Glentoran go into this match following a 0-0 Premiership draw versus Linfield.
In their past six fixtures, Mick McDermott's Glentoran have hit the back of the net a combined total of 10 times - an average number of goals per match equal to 1.67.
Pre-game facts show that Glentoran:
- have not lost a league tie with Coleraine in their previous 2 matches.
- have not registered a win against Coleraine in their previous 16 league games. They'll surely be desperate to put an end to that run.
- are undefeated in their last 7 home league matches.
Coleraine go into this encounter following on from a 2-0 Premiership win with the eclipse of Cliftonville in their previous game.
The only scorer from Coleraine was Ben Doherty (16', 62').
The numbers tell their own story, and Coleraine have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals overall. Defensively, The Bannsiders have some weaknesses to address. We will see if that trend will end up being continued on in this game.
A look at their previous results shows us that Coleraine:
- haven't been defeated by Glentoran when having played them away from home in the previous 7 matches in the league. Away fans have certainly had plenty to cheer about.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.

With a completely injury-free group to choose from, Coleraine manager Oran Kearney has zero fitness concerns to report ahead of this game.
We feel that in this game, Coleraine have the firepower to score a goal against this Glentoran lineup, but that is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 2-1 win for Glentoran by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. It should be a decent one.
