Chris Curran expects Cliftonville and Glenavon to produce a stirring battle in tomorrow’s Danske Bank Premiership clash at Solitude.
The skipper believes the Reds will approach the game in high spirits following last week’s 5-1 victory over Dungannon Swifts but is well aware that the Lurgan Blues – who overcame the Swifts by the same scoreline in midweek – are a more than capable proposition.
“They’re obviously ahead of us in the table and we have to start clawing those teams back that are ahead of us,” asserts Curran.
“It’s going to be a good game – two really good sides and a lot of attacking quality on show.
“After the Dungannon game, I think we should be confident going into it. I don’t think there should be any fear. If we play with the same confidence, we won’t be far away.”
