OK wants to add another memory

COLERAINE boss Oran Kearney believes that winning the League Cup tomorrow afternoon could be “a shot in the arm” for his players as they enter the final part of the season…

The Bannsiders face Cliftonville at Windsor Park in what will be the highest attendance ever recorded for a League Cup final.

Looking back on the road to the final, Kearney reflected that this his side have worked hard to get into that position as they have navigated their way past Bangor, Carrick Rangers, Glentoran and Warrenpoint Town en route to the decider.

Kearney acknowledged that whilst the Reds have had a great season to date, his side should take confidence from their recent good run of form in cup competitions as the Bannsiders are the current holders of the trophy.

The final – which is the first to be played on a Sunday – got the thumbs up by Kearney who added that he watches more football on a Sunday than he does any other day of the week.

The crowd in 2020 was labelled as “phenomenal” by Kearney and the boss has called for more of the same inside the National Stadium.
