Despite a poor week, Henry remains top of our Northern Irish prediction league, Henry scored a single point for correctly predicting Kris Lindsay’s Dungannon side would come out top against Warrenpoint. Despite his low scoring week, Henry remains a point clear of second-placed Bryan, Bryan was top scorer last week as he predicted the correct outcome in three fixtures and also thought Glenavon would beat Glentoran 2-1 in Monday night’s Sky sports fixture.

Here’s the current leaderboard:-

1: Henry 90
2: Bryan 89
3: Keith O’D 85
4: Darren 84
5: Cameron 82
6: Adrian 81
7: Rodney 77
8: Keith F 66

There are some significant games taking place this week with the big one being a repeat of last week’s League Cup final between Linfield and Ballymena United. A win for Linfield could see them move nine points clear in 1st place with nine games to play, though Ballymena still have two games in hand over them.

The action does start tonight at Seaview though were Crusaders host Glenavon in a tie that could be defining in Stephen Baxter’s side’s season. A win would move them level on points with Ballymena and keep their fading title hopes alive but a defeat could leave them as many as twelve points off the pace and surely bring any hopes of a league title to an end.

The full fixture list this week is below, all games are on Saturday at 15:00 unless otherwise stated:-

Crusaders v Glenavon (tonight at 19:45)
Ards v Newry City
Coleraine v Glentoran
Institute v Dungannon Swifts
Linfield v Ballymena United
Warrenpoint Town v Cliftonville
