Our visitors

David Jeffrey’s side come to Inver Park with one win, a draw and a defeat from their three league outings to date. That reversal came at home to Cliftonville on Tuesday evening, meaning a quick turn around for the Sky Blues. Having recovered from an injury picked up in pre-season, Davy McDaid is likely to be in line for a quick return to Inver Park, after his summer move over Shanes Hill.

The Inver Reds

With Tuesday’s encounter at Windsor Park having been postponed due to Linfield’s ongoing participation in the UEFA Conference League, Larne have only played two games in this season’s Premiership, taking four points out of a possible six. Like Davy McDaid, this will most likely be Leroy Millar’s first opportunity to face his former club. With Cian Bolger’s return from injury in last week’s late win at Glenavon, Tiernan Lynch will hope to have a full squad to choose from.
