There's a top of the table clash in the Danske Bank Premiership on Friday night (7.45pm).

Leaders Linfield go to Glentoran with the Blues just ahead of their Big Two rivals on goal difference.

It's after David Healy's men beat Larne 2-1 on Tuesday night, while the Glens had Patrick McClean sent off in the first half and were held to a 1-1 draw at Portadown.

Northern Ireland legend Healy admits it's a massive match in east Belfast:

All tickets have been snapped up with the capacity at the BetMcLean Oval originally limited by health and safety to around 6,000 - although some further tickets were then released.

Glens boss Mick McDermott says the game selling out sends a message to Stormont that politicians must play their part and support the Irish League's recent revival:
