The Tennent's Irish Cup sixth round takes centre stage on Saturday afternoon.

The stand-out tie is at Windsor Park with Linfield facing Crusaders.

Blues defender Chris Casement says it has all the ingredients for a cup classic...

Four ties are off due to frozen pitches.

Warrenpoint v QUB, also Glenavon v Dungannon Swifts, Ballinamallard United v Carrick Rangers and Ballymena v Portadown - rescheduled for Monday February 11th.

There was some late activity here on transfer deadline day.

Centre-back Albert Watson rejoined his old team Ballymena.

The former club captain left the Showgrounds in 2011 to sign for Linfield, then under current Sky Blues boss David Jeffrey.

33-year-old Watson has since played in Canada and Iceland.

Northern Ireland youth international defender Dylan King has moved from Glenavon to Coleraine - Rodney McAree's seventh signing in the January window.

Lurgan Blues midfielder Niall Grace has gone on loan to Cliftonville.

Meanwhile, Institute manager Paddy McLaughlin is being linked with the managerial vacancy at Solitude.

There was due to be a crunch match in the bottom half of the Danske Bank Premiership on Friday night with Newry City hosting Glentoran.

However, it was called off after a pitch inspection and rescheduled for Tuesday, February 5th, 7.45pm.
