Linfield take on Crusaders at Seaview tonight

By Q Radio Sport

Linfield face Crusaders at Seaview tonight in a re-arranged Danske Bank Premiership fixture (all-ticket, 7.45pm kick-off).

The Blues would replace Coleraine at the top of the table if they win by two goals or more. 

David Healy's men have a 100 per cent record and have yet to concede a goal in their five league games so far. 

However, the defending champions' manager says it's the acid test this evening against their title rivals from last season...

The Crues were on course for an historic third successive Premiership crown but were pipped at the post when the Blues went on an incredible unbeaten run from January.

Healy says that'll give the Shore Road side an extra incentive in tonight's showdown.

Stephen Baxter's team didn't manage a single win against the Blues all last season - and defender Howard Beverland says they paid a heavy price...

But Crusaders go into tonight on top form and a win would move them above the Blues into second place...

Finally, the Crues want to stress: "This is an all-ticket game and there will be no cash gate on the night."
