Ards will be out to complete the double this evening when they play Institute in the Intermediate Cup final at Windsor Park (7.30pm).

On Saturday, Niall Currie and co wrapped up the Championship One title and promotion to the Danske Bank Premiership by beating Loughgall 3-0 at Clandeboye Park.

Meanwhile, their cup final opponents Institute secured a two-legged promotion/relegation play-off with Ballinamallard United, despite a 1-0 defeat at hands of Ballyclare Comrades instigating a slip to fifth place in the standings.

The Red and Blues will be without the suspended Carl McComb, who completed Saturday's scoring after Ross Arthurs and a Gareth Buchanan own goal had sent them on their way, and the ineligible Gary Browne.

Beforehand, Greyabbey club Rosemount Rec will face three-in-a-row chasing Harryville Homers in the Junior Cup final, which commences at 2.30pm at the international venue.
