Second-from-bottom Carrick Rangers take on a team with only one defeat in their past 10 league matches

Crusaders could go 10 points clear at the top of the Danske Bank Premiership tomorrow.

However, they would have to beat in-form Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park to have a chance of doing that.

Rodney McAree's team hammered Ballymena 4-1 last time out and Swifts defender Andrew Burns says they're ready for the Crues...

If you're after goals, Cliftonville against Ballymena at Solitude looks like a good bet.

The last four games between the teams have produced no fewer than 22 goals.

The Reds are on a high after a 2-1 win at Windsor Park last weekend moved them up to third place.

But skipper and centre-back Jason McGuinness is expecting plenty of problems from the Sky Blues front men...

Linfield will aim to get back to winning ways when they travel to bottom club Portadown. 

The Blues have found it tough at Shamrock Park in recent times though, failing to win in their last five matches there.

Meanwhile, Ballinamallard are hoping to avoid a seventh straight league defeat when they entertain Glenavon, who've lost just once in 11 Premiership games. 

Second from bottom Carrick Rangers are at home to a team with only one defeat in their last 10 league matches, Coleraine.

Ninth plays eighth at the Oval with Glentoran out to exact revenge for their 2-0 defeat against Ards in the reverse fixture in September. 

For the third consecutive year, the Glens have launched a Christmas appeal to provide gifts, food, clothes and other necessities for members of the homeless community in Belfast.

The appeal will welcome donations at collection points at all home games at the Oval, including this Saturday.

Donations can also be left into the Milk Bar or Glentoran Superstore during opening hours. These are published on
