The Opposition  

Glentoran come into this game on a fine run of form, unbeaten in their 14 Danske Bank Premiership matches. It’s a sequence which has taken Mick McDermott’s side to second place in the table, ahead of the first game of 2022. They come to this one off the back of a 1-1 draw with Linfield at Windsor Park.

The Inver Reds 

Larne are also buoyed coming into the game, having fought from a goal down to record a 3-1 win at Carrick Rangers on Monday. The victory lifted Larne into fourth place in the table, albeit having played more games than the Crusaders side they leapfrogged. Kofi Balmer returns from suspension while Tiernan Lynch is hoping another couple of players will be ready to return from injury.
