Following Tuesday evening’s final three BetMcLean League Cup third round ties - the eight quarter-finalists have now been confirmed.

Contrary to the initial announcement of fixtures and dates, Portadown v Linfield will now be played on Tuesday 4 December owing to Portadown goalkeeper Declan Dunne’s involvement in the Northern Ireland Under-19 squad for their U19 Euro qualifying series (from 14 November to 20 November).

As previously advised, Cliftonville v Dungannon Swifts will be played on Tuesday 20 November, due to the former’s live television broadcast with Newry City on Monday 12 November.

Details regarding dates of the revised BetMcLean League Cup semi-finals will follow once confirmed.
