Coleraine in ‘Fir’ a tough time

1 Mins read

Motherwell may not have started their domestic season well but Coleraine boss Oran Kearney is still aware of the size of the task that awaits his team.

Fir Park boss Stephen Robinson, recently interviewed for the Northern Ireland job, brings his team to the Showgrounds on Thursday in the Europa League.

They collected only their first win of the season in Saturday’s 1 0 victory over St. Johnstone.

But Motherwell finished third in the Premier League last season and Kearney knows the talent at Robinson’s disposal.

“It’s fair to say they aren’t firing on all cylinders at the moment,” said Oran.

“But they are full of quality and have two or three internationals in their team.

“At least it will be a bit easier doing our homework on them than it was Maribor although we already know how hard it will be.”
