Our visitors

Ballymena United arrive at Inver Park boosted by Saturday’s 2-0 win at home to Portadown, their first league win in six outings. The three points were enough to move David Jeffrey’s side into ninth place in the table.

United booked their place in the last eight of the Shield, thanks to a 2-1 win away to Newington in the first round.

The winner of Tuesday’s tie will face a trip to either Carrick Rangers or Dundela in the semi-finals.

The Inver Reds

Larne come into the game having moved to the top of the Danske Bank Premiership in their last outing, courtesy of a 2-0 league win away to Newry City.

Indeed, the only time Larne have tasted defeat this season was last week’s 2-1 defeat away to Annagh United in the Bet McLean League Cup.

Tiernan Lynch’s men also arrive into this one as holders of the competition, having won it in the previous two seasons.

Should tonight’s game be level after 90 minutes, there will be a penalty shoot-out to decide the winners.
