COLERAINE manager Oran Kearney is urging his players to 'keep riding the wave' which has taken them to the top of the Danske Bank Premiership at the turn of the year.
The Bannsiders have led the way for much of the season and are well positioned to mount a serious challenge for just a second Gibson Cup success in the club's 90 year history.
They have lost once in the league this campaign and just three times in the calendar year 2017, marking them out as genuine title contenders.
“In a month's time I'll have been Coleraine manager for seven years but this has been the easiest, most enjoyable and pleasurable season I've had," admitted Oran.
“With the ride that we're on and the position we're in with the hype and euphoria, the position we are in the league, the fans and everything that comes with it, it has been brilliant.
“I keep urging the boys 'let's keep riding the wave' to keep up there and we just want to keep hammering on.
“It's unfortunate Monday's game against Linfield was called off but having been on the pitch myself the referee's decision was probably correct.
