Coleraine manager Oran Kearney says he's relishing another giant slaying mission in the Europa League after his warriors stunned Slovenian side NK Maribor on Thursday night.

The Bannsiders recorded a famous 5-4 penalty shoot-out success after the tie had finished 1-1 with James McLaughlin on target for the north west heroes.

Coleraine were huge underdogs in the first qualifying round clash but produced one of the greatest Irish League performances in Europe to floor a side which in the last decade has beaten Rangers, Celtic, Wigan, Palermo and Panathinaikos.
