Dungannon Swifts manager Dixie Robinson has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Glenavon
Owing to an otherwise healthy squad, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the Glenavon gaffer Gary Hamilton to contend with. Sammy Clingan (Knee Surgery) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, Glenavon can see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
However, Dungannon Swifts might well find it difficult to score but we think it’s quite likely that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
We’re tipping a pretty comfortable 1-3 margin for Glenavon when the referee blows the final whistle.
