Coleraine hero Aaron Traynor started this season fighting his way back from a serious injury. He would love to end it by helping the Bannsiders complete one of the most successful campaigns in their history with the club's loyal supporters uppermost in his mind.

The League Cup is already in the bank. If Oran Kearney's side overcome derby rivals Ballymena United at Windsor Park tomorrow, they will have a shot at Irish Cup Final success, and this after finishing runners-up to Linfield in the Premiership, which ended prematurely due to the coronavirus pandemic and was decided on a points-per-game basis.

Coleraine were four points behind the Blues with seven games left when football was halted. They never got the chance to see how that story would end. No doubt that will be a motivational factor tomorrow.
