Reminder: The rearranged Euro Electrix Mid Ulster Cup semifinal will be played at MVP tomorrow night, Tuesday December 4th.
Mourneview Park will welcome Dungannon Swifts for tomorrow night’s semi-final in the Euro Electrix Mid-Ulster Cup.
Kris Lindsay will have been buoyed by beating Cliftonville on penalties two weeks ago at Solitude to reach the semi-final of the League Cup but his Swifts side lost 5-1 in the league to the same opponents on Saturday so he’ll be hoping to see his players come up with a positive response against his old side tomorrow night.
Kris actually played for Glenavon in the earlier round of the Mid=Ulster Cup when Glenavon defeated Windmill Stars 2-0.
Gary Hamilton will continue his usual policy in this competition, which Glenavon are currently the holders of. “It’s a competition we use to get boys game time that maybe haven’t been playing recently, that have been on the bench, and also the young lads who are coming through the Club. We always want results so we are certainly going into this game looking to win it. It’s a great opportunity for the young lads to make an impression on us – that’s where Rhys, Singy and Sykesy and Caolan Marron, Bobby Burns and JJ have all proved their worth. It’s alright judging them in Under 20 football but judging them against men and decent opposition like Loughgall in the last round and Dungannon on Tuesday. If the boys can stand out in those games, they’ve got a chance.”
Jordan Jenkins has scored in both the previous rounds and in the quarter final against Loughgall he scored the late winner as Glenavon came back from 2-0 down.
The game kicks off at 7:45pm. Admission charges are £8 and £5 concession and Season Tickets are not valid.
