Following their previous victory over Glentoran in the Irish Cup by a score of 1-0, Crusaders will be hoping for a repeat performance. Jordan Forsythe (29′) was the only Crusaders player to score. Their most recent results demonstrate that the Crusaders’ rearguard cannot accomplish much more. The Crusaders have been poor, allowing just three goals in their last six games.
However, it remains to be seen whether or not that pattern will continue throughout the game. Fans of Cliftonville will be hoping for a better outcome this time. Joe Gormley scored the only goal from Cliftonville (90′). Cliftonville has been outscored by eight goals in five of their last six matches, according to the statistics. Cliftonville certainly has the potential to improve defensively.
We believe that Cliftonville has the ability to score against the Crusaders, but that may not be enough to prevent defeat.
