Will the rematch end on a high note for Stephen Baxter?

Stephen Baxter's men lost 2-1 to the same side at Seaview

Crusaders will play Livingston for a second time at Seaview tonight in the last 16 of the Irn-Bru Challenge Cup.

The Scottish side won the first tie in Belfast last month, but fielded a suspended player and competition chiefs have ordered the game to be replayed.

It's a fourth match in 10 days for the Irish League champions and manager Stephen Baxter intends to rest a number of first team regulars.

He did the same last week in the County Antrim Shield against Glentoran and a youthful Crues team pulled off a surprise victory.

But Baxter admits making wholesale changes against the leaders of Scotland's League One could be a gamble.

Kick-off time this evening is 7.45.
