Crusaders host Premier League Wolves in Europa League second round qualifying this evening (8pm).

The Irish Cup winners went down 2-0 in the away leg last week after an heroic performance.

Defender Howard Beverland says they'll also give it their best shot at Seaview...



Wolves boss Nuno Espírito Santo expects another difficult game ...

Meanwhile, Linfield take on HB Torshavn at Windsor Park with the tie level at 2-2.

Andy Waterworth struck twice in the Faroe Islands to give the Blues a great chance of going through to face Sutjeska of Montenegro.

However, he says if last week's match is anything to go by it'll be a tough test tonight...

Kick-off at Windsor Park is 7.45pm.




A last gasp strike from Cliftonville player-manager Marissa Callaghan earned a point for the Reds away at Glentoran, in what could be a pivotal moment in the title race.

The result means the Glens lose valuable ground to league-leading Linfield, who are now five points clear at the top but have played one game more.

Striker Rachel Rogan had given the East Belfast side the lead at Ulidia Playing Fields on Wednesday night but Northern Ireland captain Callaghan struck late on to ensure the spoils were shared.

That result allowed Linfield to strengthen their grip on the leadership of the table - Phil Lewis’s side ran out 9-0 victors at home to Derry City.

The Blues have now hit a devastating 30 goals across their last three league matches and now have a 17-goal better difference than second-placed Glentoran.

Sasha Clare, Faith Johnston and Amy McGivern all netted two goals apiece as Crusaders ran out 11-0 victors at home to struggling Comber Rec, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

Holly Otter, Julie Nelson, Aimee McNeill, Heather Mearns and Caitlyn Hamilton were also on target for the North Belfast side.
