Gerry Flynn picked up three points from Saturday’s visit to his old stomping ground in Ballymena and he is hoping for similar fortunes tonight against another of his former teams.
Coleraine make the long midweek trek to the Bordermen in a clash of two teams desperate to cement their position in the upper echelons of the Carling Premiership table.
Flynn knows that his side, who have only picked up win from their four outings on home turf this season, face a tough test from David Platt’s outfit and that in this league anything is possible.
“There are going to be a lot of twists and turns before the season is over,” he explained.
“Where last year we were picking up draws away from home, this year we’re getting three points and we’re up and around the top six.
“Our main aim is to stay there, but when you look at Saturday, Portadown took points off Linfield so it shows there are no easy games.
“It doesn’t matter whether it’s Institute, Distillery or whoever, every game is going to be tough.
“We’ve no divine right to win any games or get anything out of them, but if we keep plugging away, working hard and defending properly we shouldn’t be too far away.”
With Chris Morgan withdrawn from the action early on Saturday to protect his niggling Achilles injury and Alan Davidson nursing a sore groin, Flynn is playing his cards close to his chest regarding tonight’s team selection.
“You have to look at each game individually and we’ll do that for Coleraine,” he added.
“We’ve also got some injuries and different ailments.
“Emmet Friars at half-time on Saturday nearly wasn’t coming out because he was spitting up blood but he wanted to stay on and that just typifies him.
“Darren Cassidy has had a touch of the flu as well and we have a couple of other niggling injuries.
“We’re working with quite a small squad this season. We’ve 16 or 18 players and other young boys that we’re trying to bring through, but we’ll get there.”
