It has been a difficult season for Chris Keenan and it is set to end on an extraordinary note which no-one could have predicted.
Keenan was part of a Larne team which spent much of the first half of the season at the foot of the table and endured turmoil on and off the pitch.
He was also suspended and then transfer-listed by the club but now finds himself thrown into the middle of top of the table clash at the Oval.
Recently he has lost his place to an in-form Alex Spackman and has now answered Glentoran's SOS to play against Portadown this afternoon, with their two senior goalkeepers injured.
Keenan will therefore make his debut for Glentoran today in an emergency loan as they target a win in the final game of the season in the unlikely bid to catch Linfield.
"It will be a strange situation," Keenan admitted last night.
"I was as surprised as anyone when I got a call from Graham McConnell to see if I was interested in the loan move.
"Alex Spackman has been doing well recently at Larne and I knew I was unlikely to be playing against Donegal Celtic, so I thought I would accept."
Keenan will swap bottom of the league for top, a place on the bench for a starring role in starting XI, and Larne for Glentoran when he runs out at the Oval.
However he admits that it will still be relatively familiar for him.
"It will be a strange experience, but it's not going to be that different for me.
"I've played against Glentoran and Portadown already so you always have a good idea of who is going to play where.
"I trained with Glentoran on Thursday night and did some simple work with the back four.
"Alan McDonald just told me to go out and do what I normally do. There is a good lot of people from Larne about the club too.
"David McClelland is the goalkeeping coach who was at Larne last season.
"Jamie McGovern and Peter Steele are already there as well."
While he hasn't had too long to get used to it, Keenan is adamant that his new team-mates aren't out of the running for the league title just yet.
Alan McDonald's men trail Linfield by three points going into the showdown with Portadown, with their goal difference also seven worse off.
"It's football and I'm sure stranger things have happened than what is needed for Glentoran to win the title.
"It's not out of the question for Glentoran to win by a lot and Linfield to lose so you just never know.
"I won't be going to look for a League winners medal if it does happen though!"
