Portadown are back in Playr-Fit Championship action tomorrow afternoon when we face Dergview at Shamrock Park, kick off 3pm.

Portadown come into the game off the back of a superb 2-1 victory over Crusaders in the BetMcLean Cup on Tuesday however in league matters the Ports were beaten 1-0 by Institute at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium last Saturday. Dergview, now managed by former Portadown defender Emmet Friars, were beaten 3-0 by Ards at Darragh Park in their Playr-Fit Championship fixture last weekend.

So far this season Dergview have played 13 league games, winning 4, drawing 1 and losing 8 and currently sit 11th in the Playr-Fit Championship.

The last time the two clubs met was on the opening day of this season at Darragh Park with Portadown winning 3-2 with goals from Caolin Coyle, Eamon Fyfe and Paul McElroy.

For the last meeting between the two clubs at Shamrock Park you’ve to go back to October 2019 with Portadown winning 2-0 with goals from Lee Bonis and an OG.

On tomorrows game Niall Currie commented

It’s been a mixed week, obviously huge disappointment from last Saturday but in the players defence we absolutely dominated Institute the whole second half and we had a perfectly good goal disallowed, not for the first time this season, so to come away with nothing was hugely unfair, but that’s football.

We had a wonderful performance on Tuesday night to a man, it was a great night for our supporters and club but now we focus solely on Dergview who have their new manager in place in Emmet Friars so no doubt they will have that ‘wee’ bounce, but as I always say – as long as we are at it we can cope with all teams in this league.

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:
