We go head to head with Northern Ireland Champions Glentoran tonight, hoping to make it two wins out of two so far in their Group 4 Champions League qualification campaign.
City comfortably disposed of Slovakian Champions FC Union Nove Zamky 5-0 on Saturday and will be hoping for a similar performance against their national neighbours to continue their quest to top the Qualification Group and reach the knock out stages of Europe’s most elite club competition.
Glentoran are without a win after one game played, having been defeated 5-0 by Ukrainian’s Zhilstroy-1 on Saturday. However the Northern Irish had plenty chances in that match which perhaps they will feel they should have taken and City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black knows they could be a real danger if his side are not fully focused.
He said, “As a club, we are looking forward to tonight’s game. Having played less than 48 hours ago we are well aware of the need to rotate the team. The squad have prepared well and we are hoping that we can maintain our good start to the campaign.
“Having watched Glentoran, I know they will be a little disappointed with their result against the Ukrainians, but for long spells they competed very well and it is a warning to us that they are not to be taken lightly.”
Glasgow City v Glentoran, tonight, Monday 11th August, Airdrie Excelsior Stadium, 7.45pm. Spectators can pay on entry at the turnstile for the match, priced £5 adult, £2 kids.
