Glenavon v Warrenpoint Town (MU Cup SF)

/, Preview/Glenavon v Warrenpoint Town (MU Cup SF)

The late postponement of Saturday’s Danske Bank Premiership fixture away to Ballinamallard means that James Singleton was unable to serve his automatic suspension following his second yellow card against Glentoran and so he must sit out Tuesday’s visit of Warrenpoint Town. He will be joined in the stands by Mark Sykes who is suspended for one game having clocked up his 5th yellow card of the season in the League Cup win over Cliftonville.

With Dungannon coming to MVP on Friday night for a league fixture and with a lengthy injury list to cope with, Gary Hamilton will probably use the Mid-Ulster cup game to give some of his squad game time and the opportunity to some of the exciting young players who did so well in the 5-0 quarter final victory over the Swifts back in October. That team featured a good blend of youth and experience which ran out comfortable winners on that occasion.

Point, who also had their league game called off on Saturday, got their first win under new manager Matthew Tipton last weekend, a 1-0 home win against the Welders. They had been knocked out of the League Cup last week with a 0-2 home defeat to Ballymena United but still sit atop the NIFL Championship table in their bid to return to the Premiership at the first attempt.

Former Glenavon mid-fielder Liam Bagnall begins a two match suspension for the visitors having been sent off in the League Cup defeat to Ballymena. Liam McKenna, who scored the winner against the Welders, is also a victim of Saturday’s postponements, having been due to serve a ban for his 5th caution so he too misses out.

Supporters are reminded that Season tickets are not valid for the game. Admission charges are £7 Adult and £5 Concession.

Kick off is at 7:45pm with 2×15 minutes periods of extra time and penalties if required.
