Coleraine and Linfield look set to meet in a behind closed doors friendly next Thursday (September 10).
It will be a final warm-up game for the Bannsiders – who travel to play Limavady this Saturday – before their Europa League showdown with Motherwell.
Linfield take on Maltese side Floriana on the same night in the same competition.
“It will give us a real good sharpener ahead of Motherwell,” said manager Oran Kearney.
“We did something similar with Glentoran before the preliminary round.”
