Let’s get Dan to business

Daniel Kearns admits Ballymena United represent a dangerous obstacle to Cliftonville’s prospects of a place in the League Cup Final.

The sides meet at Solitude in this evening’s semi-final clash just 10 days on from a tense Danske Bank Premiership encounter that saw both teams demonstrate their quality for long stretches.

“We know it is going to be a difficult game, it’s a cup competition and we know how good Ballymena are,” says Kearns.

“They’re on a decent run at the minute and they’re coming off the back of a brilliant win against Larne on Friday night.

“It’s going to be difficult, but it’s a game we’re looking forward to and hopefully we can put on a performance and get the victory that will take us to the Final.”

Featuring pre-match views from the Manager’s Office, The Red Eye’s 14th issue of the campaign reflects on United’s stark turnaround and steps 132, 89 and 30 years back down memory lane – plus plenty more besides.
