Joe Gorman believes tonight’s County Antrim Shield clash with Knockbreda can serve the dual purpose of helping Cliftonville shake off their weekend disappointment and provide the first step on the road to silverware.
The Reds suffered a harsh 1-0 defeat to Linfield on Saturday and have an early chance to return to winning ways when they play host to the Bluefin Sport Championship’s bottom side.
“We’ve an opportunity to bounce back straight away,” explains Gorman.
“The expectations are high and pressure is there because we’re one of the biggest Clubs in Ireland.
“You’ve got no choice, you’ve got to play to win every trophy.”
