Our visitors

Crusaders leapfrogged Larne into second place on Goal Difference, with last week’s 2-0 win away to Dungannon Swifts. Philip Lowry has been the standout campaigner for the Crues of late, with the experienced midfielder having bagged eight goals to date.

A win for either side would take them into top spot, with leaders Glentoran not kicking off until Saturday.

The Inver Reds

Larne suffered their first league defeat of the season in last Friday’s 4-0 reverse at the Oval. Overall, it has been an excellent start to the campaign, with only four of the opening 11 league games having been played at Inver. The home record has also proven to be a strong one with three wins and draw from those opening four games, with no goals conceded so far.

The previous meeting between the two sides, played at Seaview, ended in a 1-1 draw. Leroy Millar struck late on to salvage a draw for the 10 men of Larne.
