The Premiership meeting at Coleraine Showgrounds on Saturday sees home team Coleraine taking on opponents Glentoran.
All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for Coleraine v Glentoran are shown below - as well as the best betting odds.
Coleraine will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 1-2 Premiership loss in their previous game against Cliftonville.
The only name on the scoresheet from Coleraine was Eoin Bradley (85'). Ryan Curran (19') and Joe Gormley (36') scored for Cliftonville.
It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Coleraine have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Coleraine have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 16 goals along the way. Previous results aside, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend might continue on in this next game or not.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Coleraine:
- are winless against Glentoran in their previous 6 league games.
- have not won at home in their last 5 league matches. Things will have to change soon.
In their previous fixture, Glentoran drew 0-0 in the Premiership match with Larne.
In the course of their six most recent matches, Mick McDermott's Glentoran have found the back of the net 9 times thus yielding them a goals scored per game average of 1.5.

- haven't been defeated by Coleraine when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 away league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 2 matches in the league.

Team News: Glentoran
Due to a fully healthy group to pick from, the Glentoran boss Mick McDermott has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this match.
We feel that over the course of the game, Coleraine may well find it hard to break down this Glentoran side who should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We therefore see a hard-fought 0-1 winning margin for Glentoran at the end of this game.
