COLERAINE'S sixth round Tennent's Irish Cup game against Institute will take place at the Coleraine Showgrounds on Saturday February 3, it was confirmed on Monday.
The Drumahoe side was pulled out of the hat first in Saturday's draw but immediately doubts were raised about 'Stute's ability to host the glamour game.
The club's Riverside Stadium was badly damaged by flooding which affected large parts of the north west last year, forcing Paddy McLaughlin's team to play a host of games away from home.
Speculation mounted over the weekend that the match could be subject to a switch and it was finally confirmed on Monday afternoon.
Coleraine booked their place in the last 16 with a comfortable win over Lisburn Distillery but must now turn their attentions to a Danske Bank Premiership meeting with Dungannon Swifts this weekend.
