The Stripes made it back-to-back wins for the first time this season as they beat Dungannon Swifts at The Showgrounds last weekend. After a scoreless first-half, James McLaughlin would bag four goals in 38 minutes, with Aaron Jarvis also netting on his home debut. The visitors will hope to bounce back from a defeat to Annagh United. Elsewhere in the competition, Dergview face Tobermore United, Institute are at home to Limavady United, with Ballinamallard United locking horns with Newbuildings United.
The two sides clashed in the competition in September 2017 and goals from Ben Wilson, Matthew Kirk and Steven Douglas helped the Stripes to an extra-time victory after being 2-0 down. In pre-season action back in July, Coleraine would seal a 3-1 win at Mill Meadow via goals from Gareth McConaghie, James McLaughlin and Ian Parkhill.
The Bannsiders are expected to name a squad mixed with a blend of experience and youth. This will include a potential home debut for goalkeeper Martin Gallagher, defender Steven Douglas, with Andy Whiteside, Alexander Gawne and Emmett McGuckin all in contention.
