Portadown welcome Annagh United to Shamrock Park this evening for the first ever league meeting between the two sides.

The last time the two sides met was back in 2022 in the Premiership/Championship play off with Portadown winning 4-2 on aggregate over the two legs.

Annagh Utd have had a steady start to the Championship season with 3 wins, a draw and a defeat in their opening 5 games. Last time out they suffered a 3-0 defeat at home to Newington.

Manager notes

We look forward to facing a very strong Annagh team this Saturday night, we have had a good week with the Mid Ulster game allowing certain players who missed a lot of pre season to get minutes under their belt that were still desperately needed.

Unfortunately we will still have no Chris Rodgers or Dougie Wilson and Paddy McNally remains out so we’ll have to get on with things. Defensively I felt we were fine against the Welders but offensively was extremely disappointing.

We will have a great atmosphere on Saturday night and hopefully use that as our 12th man.
