Linfield fans joke that Glentoran have become their feeder club with Jimmy Callacher joining former Oval aces Sean Ward and Andrew Waterworth at Windsor Park.
They won't be laughing if Cliftonville beat the Blues in Saturday's crunch Irish League clash at Solitude.
A Reds win would see them move two points behind David Jeffrey's side.
Big Davy and counterpart Tommy Breslin won't label it a 'title decider', but even with 12 games to go, it's as close as you are going to get.
If Linfield avoid defeat, they will go on to be champions. If not, Cliftonville will retain the crown.
