There are two matches in the Danske Bank Premiership tonight.

Cliftonville welcome Ballymena while it's the first 'Big Two' battle of the season with leaders Linfield hosting Glentoran, currently bottom of the table.

The Blues have won six in a row while due to postponements the Glens have only played four times, with two draws and two defeats.

But Linfield manager David Healy says form means nothing for the derby encounter and it’s still the biggest game in local football...

It'll be Healy's 250th game as Blues boss.

Meanwhile, Glens manager Mick McDermott says after missing out on matches due to Covid protocols and international call-ups he just wants to get a game.

He's been speaking to Glens TV/DigiVibe Media:

So the Glens didn't play at the weekend, but here's what happened elsewhere:

This evening's encounters will be the last with spectators before fans are banned when the two-week circuit-breaker starts here on Friday.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed the Toals County Antrim Shield final is to go ahead as scheduled next week.

The decider between the Glens and Larne will be staged on Wednesday at Seaview - behind closed doors.

Gaelic games, Mickey Harte is back in football management. 

Just 10 days after leaving Tyrone, he's been appointed the new Louth boss.
