Match Preview: Ballinamallard Utd (a)
Ballinamallard vs Ards
Ferney Park, Ballinamallard.
Saturday March 10th KO 3pm
Ards travel to County Fermanagh on Saturday looking for their third win of the season over basement side Ballinamallard, who are currently 20 points behind Ards with only nine games left to play, one more than Ards. The Ducks have only two league victories to their name all season, but one of those came at the end of January when they thumped Cliftonville 6-4 so they shouldn't be taken lightly. With games against Glenavon, Ballymena and Linfield to come before the split, Ballinamallard will need to beat Ards if they are to have any chance of avoiding automatic relegation.
The Ards side will be along the usual lines with Josh Kelly having served his suspension being available again and hopefully the upside of not having a game last Saturday is that Elebert and McAllister have had more time to get over their respective injuries that caused them to miss the victory over Ballymena last time out.
There is no bus going to this game, so fans are encouraged to car-share if possible to maximise support.
