Our visitors

Lisburn Distillery, currently playing in the Premier Intermediate League, are now managed by former Cliftonville midfielder Barry Johnston, who took over the reins at Ballyskeagh this summer. The Whites are in 10th place in the third tier, after three games played. Like Larne, their last outing was a County Antrim Shield tie a week ago, losing 1-0 against Glentoran at the Oval.

Academy prospect Odhran McCart joined Distillery on loan, ahead of the summer window closing, but due to loan regulations he will not be able to face his parent club this evening.

The Inver Reds

With last Friday’s league encounter at home to Dungannon Swifts postponed, Larne resume action one week on from a 2-0 win at home to Knockbreda. Tiernan Lynch made 10 changes to his line-up for that one and a number of players will have a strong case for retaining their place in Tuesday’s starting XI. Academy prospects Dylan Sloan, Sean Brown and Caolan Donnelly all tasted first team action.

Last week’s victory also made it three wins and two draws in Larne’s five outings this season, with the Invermen keen to build further momentum ahead of Saturday’s trip to take on Portadown at Shamrock Park.
