Ryan Curran believes Cliftonville have “another gear” to power through as they prepare for this evening’s Danske Bank Premiership clash with Coleraine.
The Showgrounds showdown comes less than a week after the Reds lifted the first silverware of the season and Curran – who struck the dramatic 97th minute clincher in the County Antrim Shield Final victory over Ballymena United – has called on his team mates to return to winning ways in the League.
“It was an amazing way to win the Shield and now we have to back it up in the League with a big performance against Coleraine,” he says.
“I think there is another gear in all of us. We were disappointed to lose the League games against Linfield and Carrick before the Final and we are striving to find the consistency and winning formula.
“Hopefully the Shield success will help us do that. It’s given us a big confidence boost and we have to look to take that forward with us.
“Teams have proved before that winning the County Antrim Shield or League Cup can propel them to bigger and better things. We are well in the mix and it will give us a bit of belief – who knows what can happen come the end of the season.”
