BALLYMENA United host Glentoran in the Danske Bank Premiership on Saturday afternoon in their last game before the New Year.
The last time the sides met was in the much delayed Sadler's Peaky Blinder Irish Cup Final in July, Glentoran running out 2-1 winners thanks to a Robbie McDaid goal deep into extra-time after the game had ended 1-1 in normal time.
