Crusaders Preview – Can Crusaders halt slump?

Crusaders were handed a 2-0 defeat away from home at Linfield on the opening day of the new Irish Premiership season on the weekend which also became Crusaders’ sixth defeat in seven matches overall in the Irish top flight.

The hosts have experienced something of a slump in recent times but they did record a 2-1 win away at Tuesday’s opponents, Portadown, in their last encounter back in March of last season, and they hold a solid record against the visitors.

Crusaders are unbeaten in each of the last nine meetings against Portadown and although the hosts have struggled, they stand a decent chance of extending their unbeaten run over Portadown here.

Our betting suggestion:

Portadown Preview – Can Portadown break Crusaders stranglehold?

Portadown picked up a point in their opening game of this new Irish top flight season on the weekend when they drew 1-1 at home with Glenavon, but the visitors have managed to win just two of their last six matches overall.

These wins came in the shape of victories over Carrick Rangers and Dungannon Swifts but both of these were achieved on home turf at their Shamrock Park, while they’ve also lost to Warrenpoint Town, Glenavon and Ballymena United.

Results away from home have been even worse though as Portadown have won just two of their last 13 matches on the road and they’re by no means guaranteed a result at Crusaders in this clash.
