The Opposition  

Portadown arrive at Inver Park with new manager Paul Doolin in charge. Doolin, a former player at the club, was at Shamrock Park to see them lose late on to Crusaders and will be charged with ensuring the club maintain their Premiership status between now and the end of the campaign, with the side currently in relegation play-off place.

Both previous games against Portadown this season have been at Shamrock Park, with Larne running out 3-2 winners in September before drawing 1-1 two months later.

The Inver Reds 

Larne ran out 3-0 winners away to Warrenpoint on Tuesday night, with Lee Bonis getting his first goal for the club. He is likely to come up against his former club on Saturday evening for the first time as Larne aim to build on the positive performance and result. Larne remain in fifth place in the Premiership standings, one point behind Crusaders who also have a game on hand on the Invermen.
