Glenavon are back on league duty tonight as they make the long trip to Ballinamallard for what manager Gary Hamilton says will be a tough place to get a result.

The game, originally scheduled for this Saturday, was moved due to Glenavon duo James Singleton and Joel Cooper being called up to the Northern Ireland under-21 squad to play Macedonia next week.

The Mallards are coming off the back of an excellent 2-0 at Glentoran on Saturday.

“We know their tails will be up after that win at The Oval,” says manager Gary Hamilton. “However, we will go into the game confident that if we play to our ability and with a little luck we can come away with the win.”

After three draws and a defeat in the last four games, Hamilton will want to take all three points which would move the Lurgan Blues above Coleraine into third place in the table.

The game kicks-off at 8.00pm.
