The last time the two clubs met was back in December at Milltown with the Ports securing a 1-0 victory thanks to a Adam Salley strike, this was Portadown’s third successive victory at Milltown and means that Portadown’s only two victories in the Danske Bank Premiership this season have came against Warrenpoint Town.

Ports striker Adam Salley has a great goalscoring record against Warrenpoint Town with five in his last five against the ‘Point, Ports fans will be hoping he keeps up that form tomorrow.

Portadown manager Paul Doolin had the following to say ahead of tomorrows game

It’s a home game and it doesn’t matter if its’s Linfield or Glentoran, you have to try and win your home games. With tomorrows game against Warrenpoint Town, who are just below us in the table, it takes on a bit more significance. I thought we played well against Linfield, particularly in the second half, and we’ve got to bring that into tomorrows game. Katlego Mashigo is suspended for another two games following his sending off against Glenavon while Paddy McNally is still not ready to return to first team action just yet.
