New Institute boss John Quigg believes his side can shatter Glentoran's Europa League dream.

A point at home to Institute would be enough for the seventh-placed Glens to secure a place in the end-of-season play-offs.

But a win for the north-west side would see them finish seventh and Quigg says that's a huge incentive for his troops.

"This Glentoran game is a fantastic one because we would finish in seventh place," he said.

"It's a great incentive for both clubs and a superb one for us as I can't remember a time when Stute finished that high up the table.

"We are the underdogs as a small provincial club so the pressure is on them.

"To finish so close to the top six would represent great progress. A lot of hard work have got us this far."

Sign In

The battle to avoid automatic relegation from the Danske Bank Premiership has gone to the final day of the season.

Newry City, who are three points adrift at the foot of the table, are at home to Dungannon while Ards are at Warrenpoint Town.

"We'll keep fighting until the end," said City boss Darren Mullen.
