Dungannon Swifts will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 0-4 Premiership losing effort in their last game against Glenavon.
Andy Hall (36', 39') was the scorer for Glenavon.
Dungannon Swifts have really been misfiring of late. Their sum of goals equals just 3 against opponents over their last 6 matches.

Coming into this meeting, Dungannon Swifts are winless against Linfield in their last 21 league games. They'll surely be desperate to put an end to that run.
Linfield will go into the game following on from a 0-1 Premiership win to beat Portadown in their last game.
The only name on the scoresheet from Linfield was Jordan Stewart (11').
Demonstrating their bias toward fruitful encounters, goals have been seen as many as 21 times in the previous 6 games in which Linfield have taken to the field, yielding a mean average of 3.5 goals for each meeting. Their opponents have got 3 of this grand total.
Heading into this fixture, Linfield have not been beaten by Dungannon Swifts when they've played them away from home in the last 9 league games. An fantastic away run.
