Comrades must stick together to cause shock: Mac

 

By Alex Mills

Ballyclare's Sammy McIlveen admits the pressure is all on Dungannon Swifts ahead of tonight's League Cup quarter-final clash at Stangmore Park.

The Comrades may be sitting pretty at the top of the Bluefin Championship, but they will still wear the underdog tag against Rodney McAree's fast improving Swifts.

Both teams approach the game in the best possible shape with Dungannon coming off the back of an impressive victory at Warrenpoint Town, while Clifford Adams' Comrades stormed to a five goal victory over PSNI.

"We'll go there as underdogs, but that suits us fine," said former Glenavon midfielder McIlveen. "We relish games against Premier League opposition.

"Dungannon are a good side. They like to get the ball down and play a bit of football, just like ourselves, so it has the makings of a good cup tie.

"We've had a great run so far in terms of our results - we've only lost twice in the league - so we'll go into the game full of confidence."

Although the League Cup tie is a welcome break from league commitments, McIlveen insists that promotion is the club's priority.

"Portadown were big favourites even before a ball was kicked," he added. "I still reckon the team that finishes above them will be champions.

"But we'll still be going to Dungannon with a view to winning. It's not every day Ballyclare have the chance of reaching the semi-final of a major tournament.

"There will be no pressure on us... it will be all on Dungannon."
