Carrick Rangers:
Since the win over United in January, Carrick have went on to win 2 league games, draw 1 and lose 8, leaving them 9th in the Danske Bank Premiership and 6 points ahead of Portadown in the relegation playoff spot with 2 games left.
Ballymena United:
In the same period the Sky Blues have won 3 league games, drawn 4 and lost 5, most recently midweek with a midweek home defeat to Warrenpoint Town. United cling to the hope of finishing 7th and reaching the European Playoffs, but that would require winning the last 2 games and Glenavon losing their last 2 games.
