Comrades skipper Ricky Higgins says he and his team-mates have nothing to fear as they prepare for tonight’s Steel and Sons Cup semi-final at Seaview.

The Reds are just one match away from the Christmas Day final, but to get there they first have to negotiate their way past a stubborn Glentoran reserve team which has conceded just one goal in the competition.

“I think it will be a tough night,” the Ballyclare striker told the Times. “The last time I checked, Glentoran were challenging at the top of the reserve league, so they are obviously no mugs. They’ve also got the added bonus of bringing in a couple of first-team players, so it will be a mixture of youth and experience in their team.”
