Carrick boss Haveron set to make changes for cup tie

By Keith Bailie

Carrick Rangers boss Gary Haveron will ring the changes for tomorrow's Intermediate Cup fourth round clash with Dunloy at Taylor's Avenue (3pm).

Carrick have already bagged the Steel & Sons Cup, but with 16 league games left to play Haveron believes the Intermediate Cup provides a good opportunity to give some of his squad players a match.

"We want to win every game that we play and it will be no different against Dunloy. I'm trying to breed a winning mentality at Carrick. Our only defeats this season have came against an excellent Cliftonville side in the League Cup and a league tie against The Welders, when we had a number of players missing.

"I will be making plenty of changes, but I believe everyone at the club possesses the quality required to play for Carrick. We've a number of good pros like Graeme Arthur, Nathan McConnell and Anto Lagan who will get a start, while it's also a chance for us to look at a few youngsters such as Michael McKenna and Jack Martin."

Championship One leaders Bangor will travel to Dungiven Celtic (1.30pm), as they aim to retain the trophy they won last May.

Tomorrow's fourth round fixtures (kick-off 1:30pm unless stated): Ards v Cliftonville Olympic, Armagh City v Fivemiletown United (3pm), Ballyclare Comrades v Queen's University (3pm), Banbridge Town v Derriaghy, Carrick Rangers v Dunloy (3pm), Comber Rec v Sport & Leisure Swifts, Dergview v Larne, Dollingstown v Glentoran II, Drumaness Mills v Dundela, Dungiven v Bangor, H&W Welders v Strabane Athletic, Immaculata v Coleraine Reserves, Knockbreda v Lurgan Celtic, Loughgall v Linfield Swifts, Malachians v Lisburn Distillery, PSNI v Wakehurst.
