Loughgiel skipper Johnny Campbell was confident the Antrim side could finish the job in the replay.

"There is more to come from us," he said.

"They hit us hard at the start of each half and we always seemed to be chasing the game.

"People were asking if we still had the hunger after last year. I hope that has answered a few questions."
