The 1889 will be open from 12noonfor those travelling to the game from Inver Park and will remain open for their return.


Portadown have struggled for form in the first third of the season and continue to look for their first league win of the campaign, after 14 games. Niall Currie was appointed at the end of October, taking over from Paul Doolin for his second stint in charge of the club. Having inherited a team in bottom spot, his task, first and foremost, will be to keep his hometown club in the top flight.

They come into this game off the back of a 2-0 defeat away to Carrick Rangers, however they remain just three points behind Dungannon Swifts, who are in 11th place.

The Inver Reds

Larne head down the M1 in good form, having returned to the top of the table with Tuesday’s 4-0 win at home to Dunnganon Swifts. The victory took them to just over half the total they amassed in the whole of last season, with 13 games played for Tiernan Lynch’s side.

Leroy Millar and Lee Bonis continued their fine goalscoring form on Tuesday with a goal apiece. It was Paul O’Neill who grabbed the only goal of the game the last time travelled to Shamrock Park, in September.
