LOSING last year's Tennent's Irish Cup final continues to drive Coleraine's players in this season's competition.
“We have spoken in the changing room, especially when the cup games come around, as a club and group that we feel we have unfinished business in the Irish Cup,"offered manager Oran Kearney.
“It whet our appetite last year, it gave people the taste of a final and the experience of the day was brilliant.
“The outcome of the day wasn't good but I still stand over that it's been a huge catalyst for us and our success going forward.
“But we want to get back there and we want to do it again, but go that step further.

“In a one-off game at this stage of a cup anything can happen.
