Preview: Coleraine v Glenavon

/, Preview/Preview: Coleraine v Glenavon


Glenavon hits the road to Coleraine tomorrow for a second time this season. On the last visit a Glenavon victory brought and end to a long unbeaten run for the Bannsiders and Gary Hamilton’s men also inflicted a 4-0 defeat on Rodney McAree’s team in the live BBC Sport NI Friday night game in Mid-December.

“Games are always difficult against Coleraine – we never get it easy. Okay, the results this year have gone for us but we know tomorrow will be a different kettle of fish. It’ll be a difficult game; they’re starting to go well and get results so we know that nothing other than our best will be good enough. We need people performing individually and as a team if we are to get a result, which will be a difficult task, but if we could do it, that would be a tremendous outcome,” Gary told us.

There’s some good news on the injury front: although Andrew Mitchell is still out with a thigh strain, Andy Hall, Aaron Harmon and Sammy Clingan are all fit again and available for selection. Also available is defender Seamus Sharkey who made his debut at centre -half against Rosemount Rec in last Saturday’s Irish Cup win after completing a January move from Sligo Rovers.
