By their own high standards, Linfield have had a somewhat indifferent start to their league campaign to date. David Healy’s side currently occupy sixth place, after five wins, a draw and three defeats in their opening nine league games. Their latest outing was a 3-2 win at home to Glenavon on Tuesday evening, when Eetu Vertainen scored a late winner as the Blues came from behind to claim the points.
In six meetings between the sides last season, there were two wins apiece and two draws in what have typical of closely run games since Larne’s return to the Premiership.
The Inver Reds
Larne come into this game as the Premiership leaders, having consolidated their place at the top with last Friday’s impressive 4-0 win at home to Cliftonville.
Lee Bonis got off the mark in the league with a five-minute hat-trick, while Tiernan Lynch’s men made it nine clean sheets in their opening 13 games, in all competitions.
With seven wins and two draws from their opening nine games, Larne go to Windsor with confidence but knowing a stern examination awaits.
