Conor Downey misses out on facing former club Linfield

Newry City will be without Darren King, Gavin McDonnell and Conor Downey for Friday night's Carling Premiership game against Linfield at Windsor Park.

King is suspended, McDonnell has a chest infection and a calf injury rules out former Blues midfielder Downey.

Donegal Celtic also have injury worries ahead of their Seaview encounter with Crusaders, who have striker David Rainey back from a ban.

Stephen McAlorum is out while Aiden McVeigh and Daniel Hanna are doubtful.

Donegal Celtic captain McAlorum will be sidelined for three weeks with an ankle injury.

McVeigh also has an ankle problem while Hanna is a concern because of a groin injury.

Donegal Celtic are struggling on their return to the top flight and the west Belfast side lies three points adrift at the bottom of the table.

The Crues are just three points behind leaders Glentoran after going eight games unbeaten in the league.

Linfield are even closer to the Glens and David Jeffrey's side will move top if they secure victory over City.

Both fixtures on Friday night have a 1945 BST kick-off.
