Title mission: Ben Doherty with Linfield's Kirk Millar

Coleraine ace Ben Doherty says it would be a "kick in the teeth" if he and his team-mates aren't given the opportunity to chase down Linfield for the Danske Bank Premiership title and a crack at an historic treble.

A seven-match winning run had seen the Bannsiders close to within just four points of leaders Linfield when the season was suspended on March 13 due to coronavirus, with high hopes of turning that around in the final seven games on the back of lifting the League Cup just a month before.

An Irish Cup semi-final date against derby rivals Ballymena United had Oran Kearney's men dreaming of unprecedented success at the Showgrounds.
