Cliftonville favourite Conor McMenamin

Cliftonville striker Conor McMenamin says there will be no excuses from his side if they let their Irish Cup dream slip away.

The preparation for the big semi-finals has been far from ideal for all four teams but the clubs are still grateful for the opportunity to win the prize and seal a Europa League place.

It's well documented that the Reds haven't won the glittering prize since 1979 and as the Red Army aren't allowed to march towards Windsor Park, perhaps that will lift some of the expectation and pressure on the players' shoulders.
