County Antrim Shield final put back 24 hours to 4 December

Linfield's Aaron Burns competes against Crusaders skipper Colin Coates in last month's Premiership clash

The County Antrim Shield Final between Crusaders and Linfield at the Oval has been put back by 24 hours until Wednesday 4 December.

The game had been scheduled to take place on 3 December but the decision to play the game a day later was taken by the County Antrim FA on Monday evening.

Crusaders reached the decider by beating holders Ballymena United 1-0 in last week's second semi-final.

Linfield hammered Cliftonville 4-1 in the opening semi-final.

The finalists are currently the top two in the Irish Premiership and couldn't be separated in their goalless league clash last month.
