Amateur League minnows Kilmore Rec target an upset against Premiership leaders Cliftonville in the Irish Cup quarter-finals.

Kilmore Rec's Mark Holland wants his former club Cliftonville to be victims of a massive upset in Saturday's Irish Cup quarter-final at Solitude.

"It's going to be a monster task getting by Cliftonville but you never know what's going to happen in a cup game," said the striker.

Elsewhere, Coleraine host Portadown and Lisburn Distillery visit Crusaders, while Knockbreda welcome Glentoran.

Ballymena take on Donegal Celtic at the Showgrounds in the Premiership.

Holland is one three Solitude old boys at Kilmore with player-manager Gary Kennedy and Peter Telford also having spells with the Reds.

The Amateur League minnows from Crossgar have progressed to the quarter-finals for the first time but standing in the way are the runaway leaders of the Premiership.

"Cliftonville have quality throughout the team with the likes of Joe Gormley, Liam Boyce, George McMullan, Barry Johnston and Stephen Garrett," added Holland.

"So it's pointless concentrating on just one or two players and trying to stop them.

"I'm loving my football at present and the best thing is the banter between the boys - the team bonding here is second to none.

"Some of the lads here look up to me as a role model after my time at Cliftonville, and I've told them to enjoy the day, as they have nothing to lose.

"There's a real buzz at the club for this game and everyone can't wait for the the big day."

Championship outfit Knockbreda hope home advantage will give them an edge as they also chase a quarter-final shock, with Glentoran the potential victims.

Crusaders will be fancied to overcome the Whites while Coleraine's game with Portadown should be a tight affair.

Donegal Celtic will be without the suspended Paul Bradley for Saturday's only Premiership game against the Sky Blues.
