Glenavon return to league action on Saturday with a trip to Taylor’s Avenue.
It will be a first game in charge of the Amber Army for Aaron Callaghan, a face who may well be familiar to Glenavon fans. The big defender turned out on 17 occasions for the Lurgan Blues in 2000 while on loan from St Pat’s Athletic.
Callaghan finds himself coming in to organise a Carrick team who find themselves in a relegation scrap with Ballinamallard and bottom of the table Portadown, who lost their own manager last night (Friday).
So what of Glenavon? Gary Hamilton will be hoping that his men can secure a third win in a row after beating the Ports two weeks ago and H&W Welders on Wednesday night.
The bookies have priced the visitors as favourites and you can see why when you look at the form guide. They have only lost one of their last eight outings while Carrick are looking to avoid an eighth straight loss.
However, Hamilton will be taking no chances.
