Linfield are back on home soil for Matchday 36 of the Sports Direct Premiership with Coleraine the welcome visitors to Windsor Park (7.45pm k.o. all-ticket). This season the teams have met 3 times in the league with Linfield banking 6 points. 

Coleraine have had a disappointing season with a 6th place finish in the Premiership table only secured at the last minute. On Saturday The Bannsiders recorded a 2-1 home win over Glentoran courtesy of a two goal salvo from talismanic striker Matthew Shelvin. This continued their good run of form (unbeaten in 7 games) and Manager Oran Kearney will be hoping his team can book their place in the end-of-season European Play-offs.

Linfield left it very late in Friday night's 2-1 win over Crusaders at Seaview with Daniel Finlayson heading home in added time. The victory sets up David Healy’s Blues for another massive night of football under the Windsor Park floodlights and as the title race comes down to the wire, it is all about putting points on the board. Linfield will look to begin the first of their final 3 league games with a win.
