After losing their opening day encounter away to Coleraine, Cliftonville have enjoyed an unbeaten run ever since in the Danske Bank Premiership, winning six and drawing one of their subsequent seven games. That has been enough to lift the Solitude side to third in the table, one point behind the Invermen.
Paddy McLaughlin’s side enjoyed a fine campaign last season, taking the title race to the final day and eventually finishing just behind winners Linfield.
The summer transfer window saw strikers move in the opposite direction between Larne and Cliftonville with tonight being the first time Ronan Hale is likely to face his old club, with Paul O’Neill doing likewise in home colours.
The Inver Reds
Tuesday’s derby victory over Ballymena in the County Antrim Shield saw Larne continue their fine start to the season. The aim will be to book a third successive Shield final, but thoughts of that will have to wait until next month’s semi-final clash away to Dundela.
Tiernan Lynch’s men come into this game topping the table, with a record of eight clean sheets in their 12 outings so far, in league and cup competition.
At the other end, Larne have only failed to score in one game this season – the opening night encounter with Glentoran. All in all, it sets up what is a hotly-anticipated fixture.
