The Opponents

Last week, Dergview recorded their first win of the campaign with a narrow victory over Annagh United at Darragh Park. Mikhail Kennedy bagged what proved to be the only goal of the game just before the hour with a successfully converted spot-kick awarded following a foul on Jamie Browne.

The Comrades

Last week, Ballyclare Comrades swept to a comprehensive five-goal victory over HW Welders at the Blanchflower Stadium. Darius Roohi opened the scoring for the visitors after 12 minutes when he followed up from Ian Fletcher’s free-kick against an upright. Calvin McCurry made it 2-0 on 26 minues after being played through Roohi before, ten minutes into the second half, Harry Wylie added a third with a deflected half volley into the top corner. Roohi doubled his tally just five minutes after that after receiving the ball from Gary Donnelly with Cathal Farren completing the scoring with a left-foot finish with around a quarter-of-an-hour remaining.

Last Time Out

The last time these two sides met in August, the Comrades swept to victory over Dergview at Darragh Park thanks to three second half goals. Scoreless at the break, the home side were reduced to ten men on the stroke of half-time when Bobby Deane was dismissed for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity. The visitors made their numerical advantage count just after the hour when Ian Fletcher opened the scoring before, on 77 minutes, Liam Hassin made it 2-0 on the counterattack.Calvin McCurry then completed the scoring in stoppage time.
