Glentoran face Linfield at the Oval on Monday night in the first Big Two derby of the season (7.45pm).

The unbeaten Blues are sitting second in the Danske Bank Premiership, two places ahead of their old rivals.

The game is live on Sky and Linfield manager David Healy says it should be worth watching...

The Glens are six points behind Linfield but have a game in hand.

A victory in east Belfast would move Healy's men to within a point of league leaders Glenavon.

The Lurgan Blues raced four points clear on Saturday with a 4-1 victory away to Coleraine.

Stephen Murray hit a hat-trick to end the Bannsiders' 32-match unbeaten run stretching back to last November.

Ballymena United made a winning return to Warden Street, beating Newry City 3-0.

Meanwhile, Warrenpoint climbed off the bottom of the table with a 2-0 victory at Dungannon, who now occupy the basement position.

Ciaran O'Connor grabbed both goals for Stephen McDonnell's rejuvenated team and Andrew McCarey saved a penalty from former Point player Daniel Hughes. 

The sides meet again in the BetMcLean League Cup last 16 at the Q Radio Arena on Tuesday night.
