Warrenpoint Town:
Despite a fairly poor start to the season, the Warrenpoint men have raised their game recently and are close to securing their place in the Danske Bank Premiership next season, Ards 13 points behind with just six games left to play.

Their victory over Ards was a crucial one, although they went on to lose at home to Crusaders midweek. A Tennent's Irish Cup semi-final against Ballinamallard United awaits next weekend.
Ballymena United:
United are left fighting on two fronts with just six games left in the Danske Bank Premiership. Just 6 points behind league leaders Linfield, a slim chance of a first Gibson Cup win remains, while Crusaders are just 5 points behind and mounting a serious challenge for second place and automatic European Qualification.

After a disappoint defeat at home to Glentoran last Saturday, the Sky Blues bounced back with an incredible 6-1 defeat of Institute at the Showgrounds on Tuesday evening, so will go into this game full of confidence.
