Championship leaders Larne have a chance to show what they can do against top flight opposition on Tuesday night.

They're away to holders Crusaders in the semi-finals of the Toals County Antrim Shield.

The tie was originally due to be played at Inver Park but it's been switched to Seaview as Larne didn't have a Premiership licence.

The east Antrim side are currently 13 points clear at the top of the second tier.

The top two in the Danske Bank Premiership were due to meet in the other semi-final.

But - after a 4.45pm pitch inspection on Tuesday - and following hours of torrential rain, the game between Ballymena United and Linfield was postponed.

They can try again on Saturday when they're due to meet in a Premiership clash, again at the Showgrounds.
