Cockhill Celtic boss Donal O’Brien will go into the away game with Drumkeen this Sunday afternoon, hoping that it will be the beginning of a successful run in this seasons FAI Intermediate Cup for the Ulster Senior League champions.
Speaking to the Inishowen Independent earlier in the week, the Cockhill boss was taking nothing for granted.
“Drumkeen have been our main rivals all season and every time we have played them it’s been tight, so I believe it will come down to which team wants it more on the day,” said the Cockhill boss.
If Cockhill can get past Drumkeen on Sunday and win their next game, then they will go into the FAI Cup proper and O’Brien said he would relish the prospect of a home tie against a Senior club. “If we can win our first two games, then a big draw against a Derry City or Sligo Rovers, would be a wonderful opportunity for some of our players to put themselves in the shop window,” said O’Brien.
