Reds in Irish Cup tie! thumbnailAt the Irish Cup fifth round draw last month - Ballymena Unitedís Johnny Flynn and Tomas Cosgrove, from Cliftonville. GB01Utd v Reds

BALLYMENA United take on Cliftonville on Saturday in the fifth round of the Tennent's Irish Cup at the Showgrounds (3pm).
The teams have met twice this season - Ballymena beating the Reds 3-2 in the League back on September 10, and Cliftonville winning 2-0 at Solitude on November 26.
Meanwhile, tonight (Tuesday) David Jeffrey's United side met Glenavon, at home, in the Premiership, anxious to get something from the clash (7.45pm).
At the weekend the Sky Blues were beaten 4-2 in Bangor by Ards.
Jeffrey will be demanding a big improvement - "If we play against them the way we did against Ards there will be plenty of goals, but not for us," he said.
“Ards were quicker to the ball and they showed what we usually show - great work rate, closing people down quickly and working very hard. Today (Saturday) we seemed to half a yard off the pace," said Jeffrey.
