Glentoran go to Ballymena Showgrounds, sitting on tenth spot in the table.

Glentoran go to Ballymena in the Danske Bank Premiership this weekend with Roy Coyle continuing as caretaker boss.

He goes head to head with his former Linfield captain David Jeffrey, now manager at the Showgrounds.

After a shaky start to the season, the Sky Blues are sitting third in the table - with Glentoran third from bottom.

It's set to be a special day for Glens keeper Dwayne Nelson who returns to the club he left in the summer.


Also on Saturday, leaders Crusaders - five points clear at the top - entertain Ballinamallard.

The Fermanagh club have never won at Seaview, but go into the game boosted by back-to-back victories against Glenavon and Ards.

Meanwhile, Ards have slipped to fourth and this week face second-placed Linfield at Windsor Park.

Glenavon are off to Coleraine with the Lurgan Blues aiming for their first win in four Premiership matches. 

It's the battle of the Reds at Shamrock Park with bottom club Portadown set for a showdown with Cliftonville. 

After their mid-week County Antrim Shield defeat against the PSNI, Carrick Rangers are hoping for some badly-needed league points at home to Dungannon Swifts.
