Crusaders will have the luxury of a home tie in the fourth round of the Irn-Bru Scottish Challenge Cup as they will welcome Scottish League One side Livingston to Seaview.

However, Linfield will have to travel to Dumfries for their match, having been drawn away to Championship outfit Queen of the South.

The Blues will come up against a Doonhamers outfit in excellent form, with Gavin Skelton's men unbeaten in their first four games, winning three and drawing one.

Stephen Baxter's side's opponents Livingston have also started the season brightly, winning three of their opening four matches as well.

The fourth round ties will take place on October 8/9.

Elsewhere, the NIFL have announced that the postponed game between Glentoran and Glenavon will now take place on Tuesday, September 13 with a 7:45pm kick-off.

Glentoran were also busy last night as club representatives met with Sports Minister Paul Givan and other local MLAs to put forward plans for a new stadium.
