Team News: Glenavon
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the lone fitness concern for the Glenavon manager Stephen McDonnell to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Mark Haughey (Cruciate ligament surgery) misses out. Jamie McDonagh will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Loughgall
Owing to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, the Loughgall manager Dean Smith has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
We think that Loughgall will need things to go their way to break down this Glenavon team who we think should end up scoring and staying ahead.
Our tip is therefore for a highly competitive game with a 1-0 winning score for Glenavon at the conclusion of the game.
