Vital role: Keith Cowan (right) starred in win over Cliftonville

Glentoran defender Keith Cowan insists he'll have no problem volunteering for another penalty shoot-out - but is hoping tonight's Sadler's Peaky Blinder Irish Cup final against Ballymena United will not go that far.

Although the east Belfast men triumphed in their semi-final decider against Cliftonville on Monday night, the big Donegal man fluffed his lines from the spot, having his shot saved by Richard Brush.

Cowan was, however, one of Glentoran's big performers on the night and turned in possibly his best performance in the famous red, green and black since moving to the Oval in January.
