The Opposition

Linfield come into Friday night’s game perched at the top of the table, three points ahead of the Inver Reds. The Blues arrive for the clash off the back of a disappointing last-minute defeat against arch-rivals Glentoran on Tuesday night and will be looking to obtain their first win in four games against the Invermen on Friday evening.

The Inver Reds

After the postponement of Tuesday’s game against Portadown, the Invermen come into the game with no fresh injury concerns. Josh Robinson continues to battle back from injury whilst Marty Donnelly is doubtful after breaking his hand in a previous fixture.

Last Time Out

Larne came out on top of Linfield the last time these two sides met back in December. After going behind in the first half, an excellent second half performance and goals from Graham Kelly, Marty Donnelly and Davy McDaid respectively ensured all three points for the Invermen.
