Glenavon go with the same starting line-up as in last Friday’s home win against Coleraine.

For Linfield Daniel Kearns, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture back in August, is fit enough for a seat on the bench as he returns from injury.

Glenavon hit the woodwork in each half, Andy Waterworth had a ‘goal’ ruled out for offside and Caolan Marron had a header cleared off the line, with he and his teammates insistent it was over the line.

This was an entertaining 0-0 draw with two quality teams having a real go at winning a closely contested game.

Linfield (4-3-3): Carroll, Casement, Robinson, Callacher, Quinn, Fallon, Millar, Mulgrew (c), Stewart, Cooper, Waterworth. Subs: Deane GK, O’Connor (Waterworth 61), Clarke, Kearns (Stewart 61), Garrett, Mitchell, Reynolds

Glenavon (4-4-2): Tuffey (c), Marshall, King, Marron, Singleton, Hall, Sykes, Clingan,  Doherty, McCloskey, Mitchell. Subs: Grace, Harmon (Marshall 89), Larmour, Muir, Murray (McCloskey 33), Jenkins (Murray 89)
