Danske Bank Premiership Roundup Linfield Ballymena

There are six games tomorrow in the Danske Bank Premiership with some interesting clashes at both ends of the table.

At the bottom still looking for their first wins of the season are Warrenpoint and Institute and the two sides meet tomorrow at the Q Radio Arena in an early season relegation six-pointer. A win for Stephen McDonnell’s men would lift them off the foot of the table having played a game less than Sean Connor’s new charges.

At the other end of the table, current leaders Crusaders are at home to 4th placed Glentoran who have enjoyed a strong start to the season. The Glens returned to winning ways last week against Warrenpoint after a defeat to Linfield two weeks ago. Crusaders were unbeaten until they came unstuck last week against Coleraine and will be seeking a return to winning ways tomorrow.

The full fixture list is as follows, all games kick off at 15:00 unless otherwise stated:-

Ballymena United v Cliftonville

Coleraine v Larne

Crusaders v Glentoran

Dungannon Swifts v Carrick Rangers

Linfield v Glenavon

Warrenpoint Town v Institute
