Six fixtures are scheduled in the Danske Bank Premiership on Tuesday night.

They include a Belfast derby at Seaview with Crusaders taking on Glentoran.

The Glens could hand a debut to new recruit from Cliftonville, Conor McMenamin.

All the games start at 7.45pm.

There was a frantic finale to the January transfer window, with a number of deals sealed on Sunday night.

The big one was forward McMenamin moving to East Belfast in a swap which saw Northern Ireland under-21 striker Paul O'Neill travel in the opposite direction.

There are reports the Reds also received a substantial transfer fee for 25-year-old McMenamin.

It's a return to The Oval for the Downpatrick man who previously played for the Glens in the 2016/17 season.

He wanted full-time football and turned down the option of a move to Larne. 

Last year's Young Player of the Year is away, the 7th winter signing at Solitude:

Reds forward Thomas Maguire has joined Warrenpoint on loan for the rest of the season and goalkeeper Richard Brush has returned to Sligo Rovers. 

Other transfers included goalkeeper Jonathan Tuffey going from Glenavon to Crusaders, and another former international - striker Rory Patterson  -joining Dungannon from Belfast Celtic.

Striker Cathair Friel left Ballymena for Carrick:

Larne secured the 11th hour signing of winger Dylan Mottley-Henry following his release from League Two side Bradford City.
