Elliott Morris hoists aloft the Irish Cup in 2015

Glentoran hero Elliott Morris has admitted this year's Irish Cup won't feel the same without the club's passionate support cheering on the side but he hopes to do the business for the faithful at home.

No fans are allowed into Monday night's semi-final against Cliftonville, a match that would have attracted a crowd of several thousand, and it will be played out in a strange and surreal Windsor Park atmosphere.

The Covid-19 pandemic threatened to finish off the Irish Cup, just as the league campaign had to be curtailed, but the Irish FA have succeeded in getting the semi-finals and final played before the end of July.
