Ballymena United are at home on Tuesday evening when they host Knockbreda in the 1st round of the Toals Co Antrim Shield.
The last competitive meeting between the sides was in the 2nd round of the BetMcLean League Cup in August 2017, United winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Cathair Friel, Joe McKinney and Willie Faulkner.
So far this season, Knockbreda have lost to Institute, Annagh United, Ballinamallard United, Newington and, on Saturday, Ards.

They sit bottom of the Playr-Fit Championship on zero points, 3 behind Dergview.

The Sky Blues defeated Knockbreda in their last pre-season friendly in July, Ryan Waide and Michael Place both scoring in a 2-1 win at Breda Park.
Ballymena United:
Like our opposition, United remain rooted to the bottom of the table with zero points after 6 defeats to open the season.
Admission is payable at the gate. Entrance costs £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and primary school aged children pay just £1.

Knockbreda fans will be housed in the Warden Street stand.

Match Information:
The match kicks off at 7:45pm.

If the game stands level after 90 minutes, the game will be decided by penalty kicks.
Both teams go into this game without a league win this season, and both sitting bottom of their respective divisions. It's an excellent opportunity for both sides to get their first win on the board. Make your way to the Showgrounds and be loud and proud in support of YOUR team - Come On Sky Blues!
