Josh Daniels comes in for the suspended Joel Cooper, Sammy Clingan returns from suspension as Mark Sykes completes his three game ban. Andrew Doyle is missing after sustaining a bang to the head against Carrick Rangers on Saturday so it looks like Rhys Marshall and Caolan Marron at centre back with James Singleton, back from an ankle injury,and Andy McGrory at full back.
Actually, as the teams line up to kick off, it’s Marshall at left back and Singleton at centre back
Great persistence by Stephen Murray to keep the ball in play on the right and as he and Mitchell play a one-two in the box, Murray passes the ball to Daniels. He shows a clever touch to take the ball across the Linfield defenders and before slotting a shot back across Deane and into the bottom corner.
Supersub Marc Griffin makes it 2-0 with ten minutes remaining with a deflected shot from the edge of the box after a pass from Sammy Clingan.
