Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership
(26 Mar 2018)
Ballymena – Ballinamallard
Ballymena welcomes Ballinamallard in a match of the 28th round of the NIFL Premiership.
Ballymena: The hosts are in the 7th position in the league, having won 44 points so far. After a superb away win (1-2) against Glentoran last Friday, Ballymena will try to get their top-six position against an indifferent Ballinamallard side in NIFL Premiership. Also, they have two consecutive wins now. However, Ballymena still has to address their faltering home form, as they have won just one of their last five games, having 4 home defeats in all competitions.
Ballinamallard: The away team is currently sitting at the bottom of the table, with 12 points won, after 2 wins, 6 draws and 24 losses. They come into this match after a draw (2-2) against Linfield in a home match. Adding last two consecutive draws, Ballinamallard has failed to win any of their last 6 matches in the league. Their awful form is the main reason for their table position.
Conclusion: The hosts are going through a good moment right now, apart from the fact that they have a huge gap between offensive and defensive quality. Ballymena has won their last five NIFL Premiership encounters against Ballinamallard. Each of their last 5 mutual matches had 3 or more goals. Therefore, we predict another high-scoring game today.
