How's Eur luck?

Just one day remains until Linfield learn their European fate — and boss David Jeffrey will be praying for good news from Nyon tomorrow.

It has long been an ambition of the Blues' manager to guide his side on a continental run but he has been stopped in his tracks by unfavourable draws in each of the past two seasons.

Last summer, Randers of the Danish Superliga imposed a 7-0 hammering over two legs and, 12 months prior, being paired with Dinamo Zagreb meant Linfield's Euro participation was as good as over before it had started.

That said, the Blues performed admirably against their Croatian counterparts, forcing a battling draw in Zagreb following a narrow defeat at Windsor Park.
