Danske Bank Premiership

After a week off for the Irish Cup quarter-finals, the Danske Bank Premiership is back this weekend with six fixtures taking place tomorrow (Saturday 7th March 2020).

Linfield have opened up a small gap at the top as they now sit four points clear of 2nd placed Coleraine, who in turn are four points ahead of Glentoran so things aren’t quite as tight as they were a few weeks ago but with the split just three games away there could still be plenty of twists and turns.

This weekend Coleraine face a tricky trip to The Ballymena Showgrounds to take on David Jeffrey’s Ballymena side. It’s been a disappointing season for Jeffrey’s men as they find themselves sitting in 10th place, without a win in nine league games and in 2020, but they’ll no doubt lift their game for a chance to deny their biggest rivals a league title.

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

Ballymena United v Coleraine

Carrick Rangers v Linfield

Crusaders v Institute

Dungannon Swifts v Warrenpoint Town

Glentoran v Cliftonville

Larne v Glenavon (Saturday 7th March 2020 at 17:30)
