It is a repeat of last year's semi, when Ballyclare won at the Armagh venue before going on to defeat Portadown in the Easter Monday final.

With home advantage Ballyclare will be favourites, although they go into the game having played an important midweek Kukri Ulster Championship Division One match against Cooke on Tuesday night.

A bonus point win saw them climb to the top of the table and they now need a win against Dromore to secure the league title.
