Team News: Coleraine
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Coleraine gaffer Oran Kearney to be concerned with from a near full-strength group of players. James McLaughlin (Ankle Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Warrenpoint Town
Due to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, Warrenpoint Town manager Barry Gray has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match.
We believe that Warrenpoint Town must be fancied to breach the defence of this Coleraine side, but that might not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
