Kearney's issuing a challenge; HAUGESUND v COLERAINE 6pm.
COLERAINE boss Oran Kearney will challenge his players to bely their underdog status in tonight's Europa League showdown in Norway.
He accepts his part-timers face an uphill task but is eager to keep the tie alive heading into next week's return.
"It'll be a tough, tough test," Kearney (above) said. "They're full-time in the midst of their season and we are part-time out of season so that makes it even tougher.
"We have to go there with a plan and execute it as best as possible. I've been in this scenario before as a player and got results in Europe so it's not impossible."
Goalkeeper Chris Johns - who is sitting an A-Level - and defender Lyndon Kane (metatarsal) miss out for the Bannsiders.
