League leaders Glenavon host Glentoran in one of four Danske Bank Premiership fixtures tonight.

The Lurgan Blues are top on goal difference ahead of Linfield and Coleraine who also have maximum points from three games.

It's been instant success for the new-look team at Mourneview Park after big personnel changes during the summer.

Here's goalkeeper Jonny Tuffey...

Kick-off time in Lurgan is 7.45pm.

There's an 8pm start as Coleraine welcome Warrenpoint Town to Ballycastle Road. 

The Bannsiders go into the game on the back of beating Crusaders with 10 men last Saturday.

Eoin Bradley scored in the battling victory at Seaview and he's expecting another tough test tonight...

Stripes manager Oran Kearney says he's not getting carried away with the winning start to the season, even though some fans are dreaming of a title challenge...

Also this evening, Carrick Rangers are at home to Ballinamallard with both teams looking for their first win (8pm).

And there's a basement battle between the only clubs without a point so far - Ards and Dungannon Swifts (7.45pm in Bangor). 

Tomorrow sees the first north Belfast derby of the campaign with Cliftonville taking on Crusaders at Solitude.

Crues defender Howard Beverland ...

In the other Saturday fixture, Linfield host Ballymena United. 

Sky Blues boss David Jeffrey will return to Windsor Park demanding a huge improvement from last week when his side conceded six goals in a second-half meltdown against Glenavon at the Showgrounds.

Both games tomorrow kick-off at 3pm.
