Reds manager Tommy Breslin wants a final push this week from his players

IT is the semi-finals on Saturday, April 6 of the JJB Irish Cup featuring four premier league sides.

And Cliftonville are just one match away from reaching their second final of the season.

With the IRN-BRU League Cup safely back in the Solitude trophy cabinet, only Crusaders stands in their way of reaching the Irish Cup final.

But Crusaders are no push overs, lying second in the Danske Bank Irish Premier League behind Cliftonville.

The Reds have been the team to beat all season and manager Tommy Breslin has been impressing upon his players to give one final push this month to reach the Irish Cup final and win the league title.

The treble for the club is still firmly on.

Next Saturday, April 13, Cliftonville take on arch rivals in the league and one point will bring the league title back to Solitude for the first time in 15 years.

In the other semi-final, Portadown taken on Glentoran.

And if league form is anything to go by, Glentoran should run out winners, lying in four spot and 16 points ahead of Portadown.

However, Ronnie McFall will be wanting his team to dig deep and pull off a good performance and help the club reach another Irish Cup final.

The bookies have made Cliftonville and Glentoran to win their games:

Glentoran 7/5; Portadown 7/4; Draw 9/4

Cliftonville 6/5/ Crusaders 21/10; Draw 9/4
