WHITEY Anderson hopes his players can carry their confident swagger into tonight’s all-Premiership tie in the IRN-BRU League Cup.
Ballinamallard United make the trip to Solitude to face Cliftonville hoping lightning can strike twice.
The Mallards have already beaten the Reds in North Belfast this season.
They are also coming off the back of a mesmerising 3-1 victory over Premiership champions Linfield at the weekend.
Anderson himself has just been named Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association Manager of the Month for September.
“We will be going to Solitude in a rich vein of form,” Anderson said.
“We have been playing some good football recently and picking up good results along the way.
“The players’ confidence is naturally high and we have to take that into Tuesday night.
“I know Cliftonville are saying we are favourites, but they are at home and they are top of the Premiership table.”
Reds boss Tommy Breslin believes the Mallards should be favourites going into tonight’s tie.
“Ballinamallard must be favourites – they have been superb recently and Saturday’s win over Linfield was massive for them,” said Breslin.
“It will be a very tough game for us, but we’ll give it everything. It is another cup we want to win so we will be going out to try and do that.”
