The Inver Reds

After a 1-1 draw on Monday past to current league champions, Linfield, the Invermen will hope to regain winning league form today. Larne overcame Ballymena at The Showgrounds in the County Antrim Shield 4-0 a matter of 11 days ago and hope to do so again this afternoon.

The Opposition

Although Ballymena United suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to Larne in a recent outing, they bring a greater strength into today’s game after beating current league leaders Cliftonville 1-0 last weekend. Depending on other results, with a win, Ballymena could find themselves jumping from 9th to 6th in the overall standings.
