THE INVER REDS
Still unbeaten in the Sports Direct Premiership so far after a 2-0 victory over Linfield at Inver Park last week, Tiernan Lynch will be hoping to continue to build momentum.
With three out of four games at Inver Park ending in victories with a clean sheet, the Inver Reds have looked strong in defence ever since the opening day 4-4 draw with Dungannon Swifts.
New loan signing Ilijah Paul is still awaiting the relevant clearances before making his debut for the Inver Reds.
Carrick Rangers come to Inver Park on the back of a defeat to Glenavon at Mourneview Park last weekend after playing the majority of the game with 10 men, leaving them 9th in the table after eight games played.
Former Larne players Andy Mitchell and Albert Watson could feature for the Amber Army at Inver Park on Friday night.
