  6. Team News

    Glentoran v Newry City

    Newry play their first match away to Glentoran since 2010, sitting eighth in the table. They will be satisfied with how things have gone so far on their return to the top flight, with two early victories in the bag.

    Glentoran, too, should be content with how things have been shaping up as they sit fifth with eight points from five fixtures.

    The Glens must make do without defender Nathan Kerr as he’s been called up to the Northern Ireland Under 21 squad.

    Glentoran: Morris, Garrett, Kane, Birney, Herron, Allen, McGuigan, McDaid, Pepper, Gordon, Redman.

    Newry City: Coleman, Mooney, King, McCann, Carville, McCabe, S Hughes, M Hughes, McCaul, Delaney, Montgomery.

  9. Remember this folks?

    Warrenpoint Town v Linfield

    Today marks the 13th anniversary of a rather famous victory for Northern Ireland. The mighty England were the opponents at Windsor Park and the photo captures the strike which won the game.

    The scorer, of course, was David Healy and Northern Ireland's record scorer will be spending this evening on the sidelines at Milltown in charge of the Blues.

  10. Team news

    Cliftonville v Institute

    Barry Gray was far from impressed with the performance of his Cliftonville side last week as they slumped to defeat at Newry.

    The Reds boss makes four changes today, bringing in Jaimie McGovern, Ryan Curran, Aaron Donnelly and Thomas Maguire. The suspended Jamie Harney is among those to drop out.

    There are three changes for Institute following their 0-0 draw with Dungannon Swifts last weekend, as Ryan Morrow, Jamie Dunne and Callum Moorehead come in. August Player of the Month Michael McCrudden starts up front, hoping to add to his four league goals.

  14. Blues target top spot

    Welcome to our coverage of tonight's three league games - moved back a day because of Northern Ireland's encounter with Bosnia-Herzegovina at Windsor Park.

    Linfield just need to avoid defeat at Warrenpoint Town to leapfrog leaders Coleraine, who are reeling from the loss of manager Oran Kearney after his move to St Mirren earlier today.

    The impressive Blues are unbeaten while basement boys Warrenpoint have lost all five games, so you don't need to be Einstein to work out who go into the Milltown encounter as favourites.

    Cliftonville host Institute and not many would have bet on the Reds being three points behind the newly promoted north-west side going into the Solitude match.

    There's also an Oval meeting between Glentoran, who sit just three points off the top, and Newry City. Stay with us for another episode of Premiership drama.
