Glenavon travel to Ferney Park on Wednesday night for a re-arranged Dankse Bank Premiership fixture with Ballinamallard United, kick off 8pm. The fixture was changed due to Joel Cooper and James Singleton being called up to the NI Under 21 Squad. Singleton scored the third goal in Saturday’s 3-1 comeback win at Mourneview Park against Dungannon Swifts and seems to be enjoying his new role in the centre of Glenavon’s mid-field, having also scored the equaliser in the Mid-Ulster derby to earn a valuable point.
At the Oval on Saturday Whitey Anderson’s side picked up their first league win since an opening day victory at Warrenpoint Town and they will look to build on that result knowing that a win against the Lurgan Blues would see them move up three places to leapfrog Carrick Rangers and Ballymena United into 8th spot. Gary Hamilton will be going with the aim of taking all three points to move to within a point of 4th placed Coleraine, at least until Saturday’s fixtures are completed.
Glenavon has won four of the last five fixtures between the teams in all competitions, including a 3-1 victory in the last visit to Fermanagh back in March.
