Portadown are back in Dankse Bank Premiership tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 26 November) when they take on Glentoran at Shamrock Park, kick off 3pm

Portadown come into the game off the back of a 4-2 defeat to Dungannon Swifts in the Mid-Ulster Cup on Tuesday evening while in Premiership matters they were beaten 2-0 by Carrick Rangers last time out at the Loughview Leisure Arena. As for Glentoran, they went down 1-0 to Cliftonville at the Oval last Sunday meaning they’re now without a win in their last three league games.

The last time the two teams met was back in August at Shamrock Park with Glentoran winning 3-0 thanks to goals from James Singleton, Conor McMenamin and Hrvoje Plum.

Portadown have only 2 wins in their last 23 games against Glentoran, both coming at Shamrock Park – you have to go back to December 2015 for the Ports last home win over the Glens, a goal laden 5-3 win with goals from Gary Twigg x2, Darren Murray x2 and Robert Garrett while Glentoran replied through Marcus Kane and Curtis Allen x2.

Glentoran will be without star winger Conor McMenamin who is set to be out for around two months because of a broken bone in his foot while Shay McCartan is in line for a seven-match suspension following his red card against Cliftonville. Portadown will be missing Jordan Jenkins who is on loan to the club from Glentoran.

On the game, Portadown manager Niall Currie said

Obviously we know it’s going be a difficult day with the Glens coming to our place, our stats for the players are up in regards to covering the ground so we know we will need that tomorrow for sure.

We will have Luke Wilson and Barney McKeown available again however unfortunately Jordan Jenkins will be missing because he’s registered for the Glens.

We have worked hard to find a lot of things out about our players, and I think it’s fair to say we have done that now. All we want is honesty and I feel the players that start tomorrow will give us that, it’s up to the guys on the bench or out of the squad to push on now and show they in for the fight.


The officials are – Referee – Evan Boyce / Assistant 1 – John Doherty / Assistant 2 – Bogdan Sfirloaga / 4th official – Ryan Hanna

With more families and community / youth groups visiting Shamrock Park on match days, the club has decided to re-launch our FAMILY AND COMMUNITY AREA.

BLOCK B in the home stand has been designated as this area, a traditionally slightly quieter block and further away from opposition supporters.

We recognise that football matches are noisy and passionate experiences for players and fans alike but we would also like children, families and community visitors of mixed abilities and needs to feel comfortable when they visit a match, for some, their very first football match.

Guidelines for supporters sitting in Block B will be clearly displayed at the front of that area and we encourage all patrons in the block to follow them:
