Ards vs Crusaders.
Bangor Fuels Arena.
Saturday 10th November at 3.00 p.m.
Colin Nixon may well be bald by kick off time as he must be pulling his hair out this week. Just as the injury problem lessens a little, we have three players suspended for this match and one ineligible!
Kyle Cherry's red card last weekend rules him out and unfortunately the bookings of Callum Byers and Johnny Taylor were the fifth of the season for each player, meaning they also sit the game out. Michael Kerr is obviously unable to play as he is on loan from Crusaders. It is hoped that David Elebert will be fit to return but there may be at least one square peg in a round hole in the back four!
Although it won't be a full strength side tomorrow, Ards generally are competitive against the current League champions, indeed the champions for three of the last four seasons, so fans will be hoping for some of the never-say-die attitude that they have shown against the more fancied teams at home, such as in the Coleraine and Linfield games.
Crusaders, by their standards have been inconsistent this year and currently sit in fifth place having lost six of their 14 league games, however with the squad they possess they are capable of beating any team in the league and Ards will certainly have their work cut out to get something from tomorrow's game.
