The games keep on coming for the Invermen who are back in action once again on Tuesday evening, travelling to face Matthew Tipton’s Portadown in a 7:30pm kick off at Shamrock Park.

Tickets and Entry

Tuesday’s fixture will be played behind closed doors due to Covid-19 restrictions, however supporters will be able to access a livestream of the game with all information included below.


A stream of Tuesday night’s game will be available for all supporters and will be broadcast live both on the BBC Sport NI website, and BBC iPlayer.

The Opposition

Portadown currently sit 11th in the Danske Bank Premiership table, level on points with bottom place Dungannon Swifts. The Ports will be without defender Greg Hall after he was shown a red card in their latest fixture against Glentoran.

The Inver Reds

Tiernan Lynch’s men will be looking to get back to winning ways following a difficult defeat against Cliftonville at the weekend. Josh Robinson continues to battle back from injury whilst Davy McDaid made his return to the pitch following a short absence due to an injury sustained a number of weeks ago the last time these two sides met.

Last Time Out

The spoils were shared in the last fixture between these two teams just a few weeks ago. The Ports took the lead early on after a mix up in the Larne defence, Dylan Mottley-Henry then scored one and assisted another in quick succession to give The Reds the lead before a late equalizer earned Matthew Tipton’s side a point at Inver Park.
