The Opposition  

Lee Feeney’s Bangor are currently in third place in the Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League. The Seasiders have been without a game since mid-December because of postponements. Their sole Irish Cup triumph came after a famous trilogy of finals against North Down rivals Ards, in 1993. On Saturday, their forward line is likely to be led by previous Cup winner, in the form of veteran striker Michael Halliday.

The Inver Reds 

Larne come into the Cup game boosted by two Danske Bank Premiership victories over the Christmas period, with wins away to Carrick Rangers and Glentoran. Tiernan Lynch’s men made it to last year’s Irish Cup final, losing 2-1 to Linfield at Mourneview Park.
