Coleraine Prediction – Can Coleraine remain unbeaten at home?

Friday night’s hosts Coleraine bring a 3-match unbeaten run overall into this important Friday night encounter against Crusaders having recently recorded wins against Ballymena United and Carrick Rangers as well as a point in a 1-1 draw with 2nd placed Linfield.

Coleraine have lost just three matches overall in this season’s Northern Irish Premiership campaign and head into this clash having lost just 1 of their last 6 matches as they look to grab all three points here which could take them to the top of the Premiership table.

Just three points separate the top four clubs in the Northern Irish top flight but Coleraine still remain the only team yet to taste defeat on home turf this season at their Showgrounds ground, posting a solid home record to date of 7-5-0 26/8.

Within this record are 7 clean sheets as the hosts have made their backyard a fortress this term while scoring 2 goals or more in 7 of these 12 matches also. In addition, Coleraine have won the last 3 meetings on the trot against Crusaders which will give them confidence in getting a result on Friday night.

Crusaders Prediction – Can Crusaders win three on the trot?

The visitors will be in reasonably confident mood as they make their way to Coleraine for this Friday night clash having registered recent back-to-back wins against Dungannon Swifts 5-0 and a 4-0 win away from home at Warrenpoint Town.

However, these victories have been posted against two of the bottom three teams in the Northern Irish Premiership and prior to these wins, Crusaders had gone 4 league matches without a win in the domestic top flight.

Picking up just 2 points from the possible 12 points on offer during this period prevented Crusaders from moving up the table and into top spot following losses to Ballymena United and Cliftonville which were either side of draws with Glentoran and Linfield.

Results away from home though have been been solid enough as the visitors possess an away record of 6-5-1 29/11 which includes an unbeaten run of 9 matches on their travels.


Key-Facts – Coleraine vs Crusaders

  • Coleraine still remain the only team yet to taste defeat on home turf
  • Crusaders are unbeaten in their last 9 away matches in the Premiership
  • Coleraine have won the last 3 meetings on the trot against Crusaders


Betting Tips Verdict

Coleraine have yet to be beaten at The Showgrounds and they should at least avoid defeat here too.
