Joe Gormley says Cliftonville are looking forward to tomorrow’s Europa League Play-Off Final against Glentoran and says the occasion draws parallels with the Irish Cup decider.
Seven days on from defeat to Coleraine in that particular contest, the Reds find themselves one game away from European qualification and Gormley – who netted a double in Wednesday night’s Semi Final victory over Ballymena United – is determined to make the most of it.
“We had a job to do against Ballymena and thankfully got the job done,” says the 28-year-old.
“[Saturday’s] is a huge game and probably just as big as the Irish Cup Final. We need European football and we’re looking forward to the game.”
