Enniskillen will be biding for a place in the semi-final of the Towns' Cup this Saturday when they travel to Ballyclare.

The game is a re-run of last year's final when Skins came out on top to land the cup for the first time in 82 years and coach Stevie Welsh says they are determined to continue with their defence of the title.

"There is more pressure when you have it to hold on to it. The Junior Cup is special but the Towns' Cup means so much to the club and we won't be looking to give it up," he stated.

The sides met in the league only last weekend in Ballyclare with the home side taking the points but Welsh says he won't have any problems lifting his charges for the Towns' Cup encounter.

"We are a bit disappointed after Saturday but it is a good place to be in. We didn't play very well in the second half, the conditions didn't let us play and in the first half we should have got more points, we maybe needed another 15 points with the wind.

"We are looking forward to Saturday though, it's different and the boys lift it for Towns' Cup as opposed to league. It is a different level," he added.

And Skins have turned over Ballyclare in big cup games in recent times which will give them confidence ahead of Saturday's contest.

"We have played them regularly and when we turn up we usually play well. We played them in the semi-final of the Junior Cup and played them off the park and obviously in the final last year of the Towns' Cup. We know we can beat them and we know how to beat them. I still think that they think we are very forward dominated but our back line has come on brilliantly," he said.

Welsh and his coaching team do though have injury concerns but that opens the door to others to come in.

"We have a few injuries at the minute which is unfortunate but we'll take stock of them this week and take it from there. Injuries meant that young Daire Hill came in last Saturday for his debut and he was excellent for us," he commented.

And the Skins coach is expecting a close tie.

"I would expect it to be tight. The wind and weather will come into it but hopefully we can keep the pressure on them and produce a performance."
