Coleraine 3 Dungannon Swifts 2

Oran Kearney says records are made for breaking.

He fervently believes his Coleraine side can end Cliftonville's 14-match winning run at Solitude tomorrow night and book a place in the Irn Bru League Cup final.

Coleraine have not lost to the Reds in their last 10 meetings, over a three-year period, but Kearney says his players will have to focus on the job in hand or risk presenting Cliftonville with the opportunity to smash that long wait for success against his side.

After taking their foot off the pedal during Saturday's league victory over Dungannon Swifts, Kearney said: “We made life difficult for ourselves but the players have to learn from it.

“We almost let Dungannon deny us all three points. We can't afford to let our concentration slip against the Reds.”

Early goals from Ciaran Clarke and Curtis Allen put Coleraine into a comfortable position but Joe McCready scrambled a goal after keeper Michael Doherty dropped the ball.

Black converted a penalty to restore Coleraine's two-goal advantage before Terry Fitzpatrick responded for the visitors.
