Conor McDermott has warned against any underestimation of Bangor tonight – as he challenged Cliftonville to set their sights on League Cup success.
The Reds host the Seasiders in this evening’s Third Round tie at Solitude, where McDermott believes only a professional display will be sufficient to secure a Quarter-Final berth.
“You can’t underestimate any team,” says the 22-year-old.
“Football is a weird game, if you take your foot off the gas and don’t perform the way you should, it can come back to bite you. We’re going to be up for it and play a good team in Bangor.
“We’re going to go out and try and win the Cup – that’s our main aim.”
