Linfield last night warned fans not to disrupt the presentation of the Gibson Cup, should their team win the Irish Premier League title at Seaview on Saturday.
With this weekend being the final day of the season the trophy will be presented to the winners at the end of the game and with Linfield needing just a point to be certain that is likely to happen on the Shore Road.
Over 3,000 Linfield fans are expected in north-Belfast and the club last night issued instructions on how they are expected to behave should the title be clinched.
The club statement said: "It is essential that supporters stay off the pitch to ensure the proceedings can continue, as this club does not want the spotlight taken off the players and staff who have worked so hard all season and deserve to have their tremendous achievement properly and professionally recognised.
"For the success of the presentation supporters must remain in the seating and standing areas at Seaview as only authorised personnel will be permitted on the playing arena.
"Failure to respect the club's wishes to stay off the playing arena will more than likely lead to the rescheduling of the entire presentation elsewhere in the stadium."
