Cliftonville will have home advantage for the League Cup final against Crusaders on January 25.

The north Belfast sides went head to head in the final last year at the neutral venue of Windsor Park, with Cliftonville easing to a comprehensive 4-0 victory.

However, the teams agreed to flip a coin to determine the venue this season with Cliftonville coming out on top.

The final has a confirmed kick-off time of 5.30pm at Solitude.

Cliftonville are presently second in the Irish Premiership standings, one point ahead of Crusaders.

The sides battled to a 1-1 draw on Boxing Day in the traditional derby encounter, although Crusaders won 2-0 at Cliftonville earlier in the campaign.
