BT Coleraine

Match day has finally arrived !

Coleraine – against all the odds – will go in search of further European glory this evening.

Fans will be glued to BBC online to watch the action as the Bannsiders take on NK Maribor (kick off 7.45pm).

However, only will Oran Kearney’s side be taking on a renowned opponent in their Europa League first qualifying round tie.

But they will also have to come up against another major factor… the stifling heat.

Temperatures in Slovenia are hitting the high 70’s, even at night time.

The squad got a taste of just how tricky it will be when they carried out a light training session in the Ljudski Vrt stadium last night.

“It was very warm and the humidity is difficult” assistant manager Trevor McKendry told Causeway Coast Community News.

“But we had a super session.

“There were no issues with anyone and it’s all about tonight now.”

The players will rest up today, take plenty of fluids on board, have their pre match
