Goal routine: Robbie McDaid is hailed after his winner against HB

Robbie McDaid insists Glentoran will approach their eagerly-awaited Europa League tie against Motherwell with no fear, pointing out that the Oval club's recent record in knockout games fills them with confidence ahead of Thursday's clash at Fir Park.

Winning the Irish Cup in July, the Glens overcame Cliftonville on penalties in the semi-finals before McDaid netted an extra-time winner against Ballymena United in the decider. He was at it again earlier this week in a 1-0 home victory over HB to set up a meeting with Stephen Robinson's men.

The Scottish Premiership outfit will be heavy favourites in the first qualifying round one-leg shoot-out but striker McDaid says the visitors will travel with positivity that they can cause an upset.
