Coleraine and Glebe Rangers last clashed in 2016 and the Bannsiders ran out convincing winners at the Riada Stadium. A double from James McLaughlin, added to strikes from Gary Twigg, Jamie Coulter and Mark Edgar sealed a 5-0 victory in Ballymoney.

Team News:

Bannsiders boss Oran Kearney will split his squad in two and baulk up the numbers with some of the young promising players at The Showgrounds. There will be a fitness check on Cormac Burke, Josh Carson and Ian Parkhill as the trio missed last weekend’s fixtures.
