Tonight will see the team travel to the Capital where they will face last year’s champions Linfield in their rescheduled fixture. 

In the only top flight game in NI being played tonight, Glenavon will go into it after a narrow 3-2 defeat to Crusaders away from home on Saturday afternoon.

In his post-match interview on Saturday, Gary highlighted the challenge ahead of the team tonight.

“It’s another tough game on Tuesday night – there’s no easy ones but certainly very few harder than going to Windsor Park, especially as they’re wounded animals after their result on Friday night against Glentoran,” he said.

“Somebody gave a stat out the other night that it had been 70 plus games or something like that since they had last been beaten at home.

“So it’s not an easy place to go and get a result. I would say we weren’t too far off being one of the last teams to beat them at home because I know we had got a couple of results down there one stage. 

“If we can put in a performance like we did on Saturday, you never know. You never know what happens. We need to be on our game and we need to be play like we did on Saturday to stand any chance of getting a result.

Linfield will be seeking revenge as they host another game at home, after being overcome by bitter rivals Glentoran last Saturday. 



Haughey, O’Connor, A Doyle and Glynn remain injured and will be unavailable for selection tonight.
