Carrick Rangers boss Niall Currie has called on his team to be brave and attack Crusaders from the off when the north Belfast side visit the Loughshore Hotel Arena tonight.

Coming off the back of a defeat by Larne, when all three goals were conceded in an "unacceptable" first half, Currie was encouraged by the second-half performance on Saturday, but insists they must play like that from the start.

"We must get on the front foot and harry and harass them and take our chances, because we will get chances," said Currie.

"It's on our pitch, and if we get back to basics and look solid, that's what we have to do because we can cause them problems.

"With players coming from back from injury we have a couple of different options and will give it a rattle.

"Hopefully we can start the game properly with a high intensity.

"We need that hunger and desire in our game and that was missing in the first half against Larne, although I thought some of our players looked tired.

"Even our bionic man, Lloyd Anderson, looked leggy and I was glad I got him off after 65 minutes."
