The BBC will be providing the coverage for Tuesday night’s game which will be broadcast live on both the BBC Sport NI website and on BBC iPlayer.

The Opposition

Coleraine come into Tuesday’s fixture having suffered their first defeat in 17 games after Cliftonville got the better of them on Saturday afternoon. The Bannsiders will also be without Eoin Bradley after he was shown a red card during Saturday’s game at Solitude.

The Inver Reds

The Invermen will be looking to get back to winning ways on Tuesday night following two consecutive draws in the Danske Bank Premiership. Glenavon twice came from behind to frustrate the Inver Reds on Saturday afternoon who left Mourneview Park with just a point in the bag. Fuad Sule will remain on the sidelines on Tuesday due to suspension whilst the remainder of the squad should remain available.

Last Time Out

Two quickfire first half goals were enough to secure all three points for the Bannsiders in the last fixture between these two sides. The visitors were awarded a penalty on the five-minute mark which was dispatched by Stephen Lowry and the lead was doubled five minutes later after James McLaughlin capitalised on a mistake in the Larne defence to slot the ball into the net. A late consolation goal by Albert Watson meant Coleraine ran out 2-1 winners at Inver Park back in January.

In November, Larne were 2-0 winners at the Showgrounds, thanks to two Davy McDaid goals.
