Second-placed Linfield travel to Dungannon Swifts having moved to within four-points of Crusaders following an impressive midweek victory over Ballymena Utd

There's a full programme of fixtures in the Danske Bank Premiership for match day 16 of the league campaign on Saturday. 

Leaders Crusaders are away to the basement club, Portadown.

When the sides met in the League Cup a month ago, the Crues needed two late goals to snatch a 4-3 victory.

Ports midfielder Robert Garrett is warning the defending champions to expect another tough test this time.

Second-placed Linfield are also in Mid-Ulster - they face Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park. 

David Healy's men moved to within four points of the Crues with an impressive 4-1 victory against Ballymena United on Tuesday night. 

The Sky Blues will aim to bounce back when they host second from bottom Carrick Rangers.

Cliftonville are at home to Ballinamallard, who were beaten by Carrick last weekend and have now lost their last five games in all competitions. 

Glentoran are unbeaten in five league games going into Saturday's clash with Coleraine at the Oval. 

Glens boss Gary Haveron is preparing to take on his old club.

The other game this weekend sees seventh-placed Ards welcome to the Bangor Fuels Arena the team just above them, Glenavon.
