Ballymena arrive at Inver Park for the fourth encounter of the season so far between the two sides separated by Shanes Hill. The previous three games have gone in Larne’s favour, with David Jeffrey no doubt in determined mood to change that.

United are chasing down 7th place in the Danske Bank Premiership, with an Irish Cup semi-final between the Braidmen and Invermen to come in two week’s time.


The last outing for Tiernan Lynch’s men was the 0-0 draw at home to Linfield almost 10 days ago. Games played since have left Larne six points clear of Cliftonville and seven ahead of Linfield at the top of the Premiership.

Larne will have to make do without the suspended duo of Cian Bolger and Lee Bonis for the game. In the previous league meeting between the sides earlier in the season Paul O’Neill was a two-goal hero for Larne (pictured above).
