Larne manager Davy McAlinden takes his team to the Riverside Stadium this afternoon - their first long trip under his tutorship.

“We have already beaten Institute at home, but this is a new situation for the team since my arrival.

“Up to now we’ve had three games at home and a wee trip to Seaview which is very handy to Inver Park. Now we are heading to the north west.

“I don’t think that should make things any more difficult, although they will fancy their chances a bit more because they are at home this time.

“We seemed to be coasting the last day when we led them 4-1 and they had a man sent off, but I think we went to sleep a wee bit and they got it back to 4-3.

“Drumahoe will be a different place and we certainly can’t afford to switch off at any stage up there.

“They are a good footballing side and we will have to work hard to keep our decent wee run of results going.

“I don’t worry about the journey involved, as it shouldn’t have any bearing on what happens, so we just need to concentrate on playing as we have been doing, perform with confidence and lots of determination and we should be OK,” added the rookie Larne boss.
