Linfield boss David Healy is still hurting from the3-0 Boxing Day defeat at the Oval back in 2019.

Linfield manager David Healy admits there will be even more incentive than normal for the champions in tonight's crucial Big Two derby clash away to Glentoran.

Fresh in the mind of the visiting team will be last week's 1-0 loss at home to their fiercest rivals, when an injury-time cross from Conor McMenamin ended up in the Linfield net.

Go back a little further and the Blues' previous visit to The Oval will also spur Healy and his players on. That was on Boxing Day in 2019 - long before the word coronavirus was used day and daily - when the Glens won 3-0, sparking exuberant scenes of celebration on and off the pitch for those connected with the east Belfast outfit.
