Team news

The Inver Reds are in good shape going to Breda Park on Saturday after a 1-0 home win on Saturday against another Championship side in Annagh United. They are again boosted by the likely return of David McDaid and Conor Mitchell after both players shook off their minor injuries. However, Jonathan McMurray and Conor McKendry are still pushing to be back in the squad after their long-term injuries.

The Opposition  

Knockbreda have strengthened over the summer, with Stephen Garrett having arrived from Cliftonville as a player coach and winger Dylan Davidson, formerly of Glentoran is added to their squad. Former Inver Reds’ striker Cillin Gilmour also bolsters the opposition’s squad.
