The Invermen make the trip to Ballymena this Saturday for their next game in the Danske Bank Premiership, with a later-than-usual 5.30pm kick-off.

Tickets & Entry 

Due to the continuing Covid-19 restrictions in place the game will be played behind closed doors. However, the game will be streamed via BBC Sport Online and can be watched on a browser or the BBC Sport app, with coverage beginning just before the 5.30pm kick-off.

The Opposition  

Ballymena come into the game after a tough run of form, recording one win in their last five games after a draw at home with Cliftonville and an away win against Portadown. They will no doubt be aiming to make it three unbeaten in the league with the visit of the Inver Reds on Saturday.

The Inver Reds 

Tiernan Lynch’s men come into this game after a tough run of results. With no fresh injury concerns and having won their last two games at the Showgrounds the Invermen will hope to travel to Ballymena and gain a victory to reignite their season. Fuad Sule begins the first game of his suspension, following Tuesday’s red card.

Last Time Out 

The Inver Reds have won three of the last four meetings with Ballymena, with a 1-0 defeat at Inver Park in the previous game the only loss. The Invermen will hope to get back to winning ways against the Sky Blues in the Saturday teatime kick-off.
