The Opposition

The Blues come into Saturday’s game sitting top of the table as we enter the business end of the season. Wednesday night saw David Healy’s side overcome title rivals Coleraine in a tight game at Windsor Park. They will however be without Niall Quinn after he was shown a red card in that victory against the Bannsiders during the week.

The Inver Reds

Tiernan Lynch’s men come into Saturday’s match looking to make it three wins on the bounce after victories against Carrick Rangers and Portadown respectively. Graham Kelly is likely to miss out due to an injury sustained against Carrick Rangers last Saturday whilst Albert Watson is also doubtful after being forced off during Tuesday’s game against Portadown.

Last Time Out

Linfield came out on top the last time these sides met at Windsor Park back in February. Shayne Lavery slotted home a first half penalty to give the hosts the lead at the break. Lavery then secured his brace after picking up a loose ball in the Larne defence to make it two nil before Jeff Hughes netted a consolation goal late on leaving the final score 2-1. Larne have, however, won the last three matches played against Linfield at Inver Park.
