Damage limitation was the objective for Eddie Patterson's men after a crushing 5-1 defeat in the first leg and they had Morris to thank for earning a scoreless draw in this clash.

The Glentoran stopper was kept busy in the first half keeping out efforts from Sheppard, Zayed and Kelly.

The Glens had more in the way of chances in the second half with Stephen McAlorum and Curtis Allen going close, but it was Morris who ensured the game remained blank at the finish as he capped a man of the match performance to deny Kelly from snatching a late winner for the visitors.

Rovers will now meet Dundalk in the semi-final next Monday night.

Glentoran: Morris, Bradley, Addis, Birney, Garrett, McAlorum, Clarke, O'Hanlon, Stewart, McCaffrey, Allen. Subs: Miskimmin, Boyd, Hughes, McKee, Kerr, Nelson.

Shamrock Rovers: Murphy, Madden, Cornwall, Kenna, Byrne, Kelly, Robinson, Bayly, McCabe, Shepperd, Zayed. Subs: Hyland, McGuinness, Keogh, Finn, O'Connor, Kilduff.

Referee: Mervyn Smyth.

Darzo i dont know what you are referring to when you say 'use' as you have no idea who i follow. All i can say is for Linfield to be the so called 'biggest club in Ireland' who have the pick of any player they want , to pull out of competition is pretty embarassing, scared of getting beat i think is more likely reason. Linfield should be winning every game they play in , just about managing to be at top is pathetic

While Crusaders may be bossing the Danske Bank Premiership, it was their North Belfast rivals Cliftonville who made the headlines again this weekend.
