Portadown previously faced Newry City on Saturday and the final score was a heavy 1:3 loss at home. The club is now on a run of two losses in a row and failed to win any of the previous ten encounters. Performing at home was of little help throughout the last ten Portadown meetings as the hosts won 4 times and the guests triumphed 5 times. Only one of the previous 10 meetings of the squad concluded in a draw. One out of the last five cl featured over 2.5 goals, with two witnessing goals at both ends of the field. During those, Portadown’s defensive efforts proved insufficient to limit the opposition to no goals even once and they failed to score on their own in three. During the team’s recent five outings, the goalkeepers had to pull the ball out of the nets 11 times altogether.
