Speaking to the club’s media director Ian Cahoon, coach Gary Haveron said: “If you want to be challenging for every trophy and being at the top end of it, games are going to come thick and fast, especially this time of the year.

"We’ll be prepared to meet Glentoran head-on.”

Goalkeeper Rohan Ferguson is also looking forward to tonight’s game.
