Preview: Can Cork City overcome Genk to Qualify?

Cork City will look to overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit, as they welcome KRC Genk to Turner’s Cross in the Europa League.

City have defeated Linfield and Bk Hacken to get to this stage, and City boss John Caulfield said his side are focussed on the game: “The most important thing for us is to be focussed on the game. We know that they will play the same team as they did last week. Their home record is phenomenal, but we know they don’t travel well, so that has given us encouragement, as has the fact that we created quite a few chances over there.”

“We know it is a difficult task and we are massive underdogs but, at the same time, with a full house and the passion and noise of Turner’s Cross, we are optimistic that it could be a memorable night for us.”

“We have to keep our shape, but we know the areas we can cause them lots of problems. There are areas where they are strong and we have to guard against those. We need to be concentrated and focussed and we will be ready right from the start.”

“The noise in the last ten minutes against Hacken was incredible. We know it will be the same again tomorrow night and we have told the lads to embrace that. It is crucial that we are on song and that the crowd are too, because they have a huge role to play.”

John Dunleavy, John Kavanagh and Alan Smith are ruled out through injury, while there is a doubt over Steven Beattie who suffered a knock last week.
