Team News: Larne
The Larne manager Tiernan Lynch will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Glentoran
Glentoran boss Warren Feeney has to currently contend with reduced team options. Bobby Burns (Broken jaw), Luke McCullough (Knock), Jay Donnelly (Knock) and Marcus Kane (Knock) will miss out on this game.
Our assessment is that Glentoran have the firepower to put a goal past this Larne side, however it probably won’t quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re expecting a very close game with a 2-1 winning score for Larne after the 90. Looking forward to this.
