Glebe Rangers boss Jason Wilmont is hoping for some good news on the injury front ahead of Friday night’s massive game.

The Ballymoney boss takes on Dundela in the Toal’s Steel and Sons Cup semi-final at Seaview (ko 7.45pm) with doubts over four key players.

“Unfortunately Peter Kennoway, Willie Beckett Jackie Morrison and Adam Harte are all douts at the minute,” Wilmont told Times Sport.

“Peter has been struggling for a couple of weeks, but Jackie, Willie and Adam all picked up knocks in Saturday’s win over Brantwood.

“It couldn’t have come at a worse time for us, but fingers crossed we mayget good news later in the week regarding their fitness, otherwise we may need to gamble on a couple of them.”

It’s certainly going to be a tight affair on Friday with both sides similar to last season.

“We will probably be slight underdogs given our situation, but it’s going to be another tight game, just as it was when we played them last season,” said Wilmont.

“It will all come down to who performs on the night.

“We have a young side and I will be telling them to go out and enjoy it.

“We will also have a big travelling support coming up from Ballymoney and I have no doubt they will be our twelfth man on the night.”
