Smart returns: David Healy is hoping to welcome Joel Cooper back to the Linfield fold this evening

Linfield boss David Healy believes the cash invested in Glentoran over the past year makes them a formidable opponent in tonight's Big Two showdown at Windsor Park.

With the Danske Bank Premiership campaign now at the halfway point, Healy's boys lead the pack at the top of the table, three points ahead of second place Larne having played one game less.

They go into the second derby fixture of the season on the back of an energy-sapping 90 minutes against title rivals Coleraine at the weekend, whereas Mick McDermott's Glens had the day off after their game at Portadown was washed out.
