One of the Tennent's Irish Cup quarter-finals will be broadcast live on BBC Two NI.

Cup holders Coleraine travel to Championship leaders Larne and it's the Inver Park fixture that has been shifted to a Friday evening (March 1) kick-off for TV coverage.

It's a repeat of last year's semi-final, when Coleraine ran out 3-1 winners at the Ballymena Showgrounds.

Larne FC will soon confirm whether or not the game will be all-ticket.

Coleraine have beaten H&W Welders and Derview to reach the last eight while Larne have seen off Newry City and Crumlin Star.

The remaining three quarters will take place on Saturday, March 2.

The Irish Cup quarter-final draw is as follows (the outstanding sixth round ties will be played next Monday evening):

Sign In

Glenavon / Dungannon Swifts v Ballinamallard United / Carrick Rangers

Crusaders v Ballymena United / Portadown

Larne FC v Coleraine

Larne Tech OB v Warrenpoint Town / Queen's University (Will be reversed if Warrenpoint Town go through)
