Coleraine vs Glentoran Match Analysis & Prediction
13/11/2023 10:45 pm
Coleraine and Glentoran will meet on Monday night with just one point separating the two sides in the NIFL Premiership standings.
Having built a cushion over the bottom half of the table, both teams are looking to close the gap on the top four, Glentoran having the chance to move to within one point of Crusaders.
Ever since the start of September, it has been all or nothing for Coleraine, going 10 matches without posting a draw in the Northern Irish top flight.
A total of five wins and five defeats have been recorded during that period, regularly combining two wins followed by the same amount of setbacks.
Last time out, Oran Kearney’s side claimed a 2-0 victory over fourth-placed Crusaders, with Conor McKendry scoring twice after halftime to take his tally for the season up to nine goals.
Coleraine have now recorded three vistories in their last five matches on the road, but they have been less impressive in front of their own fans.
Just seven points have been collected from their six games at The Showgrounds, heaping the pressure on an improved performance being delivered on Monday.
From the perspective of Glentoran, they have been more inconsistent that their upcoming hosts of late, winning just two of their most recent eight games.
Their two victories in question came against teams in the bottom half of the table, each of them also coming at the home ground.
It has to be referred back to September 9 for the last time that Warren Feeney’s side prevailed on the road, that being a 4-2 victory over 11th-placed Newry City.
Four defeats have been recorded in the most recent seven matches, the first of which was a 2-1 reverse to Coleraine on September 22.
Coleraine vs. Glentoran Head to head
In the 112 previous meetings between these two teams, Coleraine have claimed 30 victories while Glentoran have won 49, and they have drawn in 33. Glentoran have scored 159 goals and conceded 136 in the process.
Coleraine Team News
Barring any injury issues, Kearney is expected to select the same Coleraine XI that battled their way to victory over Crusaders.
Their only two changes in that game came immediately after their match-clinching second goal, and each of Lee Lynch and Davy McDaid are expected to remain among the replacements.

Glentoran Team News
There may be several changes for Glentoran, at least one of them enforced due to the one-game suspension being served by Patrick McClean.
Reverting back to a defensive three looks likely, although Bobby Burns will miss out due to the broken jaw that he suffered against Crusaders on October 28.
