Ballymena United boss Glenn Ferguson hopes to keep Irish Cup run going

Ballymena United manager Glenn Ferguson hopes his side can continue their Irish Cup heroics by beating Portadown in their semi-final at the Oval on Saturday.

The Sky Blues beat Cliftonville in the sixth round thanks to an injury-time goal from David Cushley, and then saw off Harland and Wolff Welders in the quarter-finals with a strike by Gary Thompson in added time.
