His team are currently 12 points clear at the top of the table ahead ahead of Saturday's match against their north Belfast neighbours Crusaders.

Crusaders have been boosted in the lead-up to the game by news that manager Stephen Baxter has agreed a new contract which ties him to Seaview until May 2016.

Crues go into the match missing suspended trio Gareth McKeown, Paul Heatley and Declan Caddell.

Reds boss Tommy Breslin has no fresh injury concerns.

It is derby day throughout the League on Saturday with Belfast's traditional Big Two Glentoran and Linfield coming together at the Oval.

Elsewhere Ballymena United host Coleraine, but the home side will be without their suspended winger David Cushely as they look to avenge last week's Irish Cup reversal to the Bannsiders.

Ahead of their game with Linfield, Glentoran await injury news on David Howland and Stephen Carson.
