The Opposition

Glenavon comes into this game after finishing their Danske Bank Premiership campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to Dungannon. Glenavon has been in good form in recent times, winning three of their last four league games, scoring 15 goals in the process.

The Inver Reds

The Invermen finished their Danske Bank Premiership at home to Coleraine on Saturday, losing 2-1 to the bannsiders. Tiernan Lynch went with youth in the game, handing senior debuts to five academy prospects. Conor Devlin will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday night’s game while Graham Kelly could also miss out after picking up a knock at the weekend.

Last Time Out

It was an entertaining game at Mourneview Park between the two sides last time out, ending in a 2-2 draw. Martin Donnelly gave Larne the lead early with Glenavon equalising shortly after. David McDaid struck just before the break to put the Invermen ahead before Glenavon pulled it back in the second half with a penalty. Both teams pushed for the winner in the second half but the game eventually finished level.
