Cliftonville manager Paddy McLaughlin has no fitness worries whatsoever before this match thanks to a fully healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Larne
With a fully healthy group ready to go, Larne boss Tiernan Lynch has no fitness worries at all before this match.
In our opinion, Larne and Cliftonville should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore seeing a 1-1 score when the full-time whistle blows.
