Glentoran hero Elliott Morris says Irish Cup glory for the club this year will feel as sweet as any league title triumph.

The experienced goalkeeper accepts the league championship is the biggest prize in domestic football but he believes the pride and joy of winning the Cup next Friday night would be just as special. Linfield claimed the title without being able to finish the job on the pitch but the Glens do still have an opportunity to capture silverware on the Windsor Park surface if they can overcome Cliftonville in Monday's semi-final.

Ballymena United and Coleraine will meet in the earlier last-four showdown and Morris (right) had identified Cup success as a more realistic target for his side than title heroics.
