A defeat in the top of the table clash against Cliftonville at the weekend means that Tiernan Lynch’s men will be looking to get back on track by progressing to the Semi-Finals of the Senior Shield. The Invermen progressed to this round of the competition after defeating Glentoran 2-1 at Inver Park in the previous round.

The Opposition

It’s two wins on the bounce now for David Jeffrey’s men after an extra-time victory over Crusaders in the League Cup was followed up with a 1-0 win over Portadown in the Danske Bank Premiership. Ballymena United ran out 2-0 winners in the previous round of the competition against H&W Welders to set up the meeting with the Inver Reds in tonight’s clash.
