Glasgow brothers Scott and David Young square up to each other in Wednesday night's Nationwide Gold Cup quarter-final between Glentoran and Portadown.

Scott has starred in the Glens midfield for a couple of years now, while David recently signed for Portadown.

Wednesday's cup clash is the first time they have played against each other.

"David came over to Northern Ireland because he needed games to get his match fitness up," said 23-year-old Scott.

"It will be strange playing against him but my main concern is how Glentoran do."

Glentoran will be favourites having beaten Portadown 3-0 in the league recently.

Veteran defender Brian Strain and new signing Ray McKinnon are poised to come into the Portadown team.

Strain, who has lost his regular place as first choice centre-back, comes in for Philip Major who is suspended after being sent-off in Saturday's league game against Coleraine.

Former Nottingham Forest and Dundee United midfielder McKinnon could play as Ports manager Ronnie McFall has some injury worries.

In Wednesday night's other semi-final Omagh Town travel to Newry without Colm McCullough and skipper Eamonn Kavanagh.

Both were sent-off in a stormy league defeat against Glentoran on Saturday.

"They are both left-sided players so it hits our plans badly," said Omagh boss Roy McCreadie.

Better news for McCreadie came with the news that striker Barry Patton, who missed the Glentoran match because of a knee injury, is available again.
