Two further Danske Bank Premiership fixtures have been confirmed to be televised live on Sky Sports.
First to be broadcast is Champions Linfield hosting title-rivals Crusaders at Windsor Park on Monday 23 October in a game which has regularly guaranteed excitement.

Two weeks later, the Sky Sports cameras will show Ballymena United’s visit to Gary Haveron’s resurgent Glentoran team on Monday 6 November. The East Belfast men have already defeated the Sky Blues this season, but David Jeffrey’s men have a fine record at the Oval and will be looking for a repeat the stunning 3-2 comeback victory they enjoyed last December.
