Shamrock Rovers coach Stephen Bradley insists they won't be intimidated by Europa League opponents AC Milan.

Milan travel to Ireland for the second qualifying round of the Europa League on Thursday.

“We know it's going to be a difficult game obviously, but we'll go with a game plan to try and win the game like we always do," Bradley told the club's official website.

“We know there's going to be times in the game when we're up against it and we're going to have to dig in.

“That's only normal when you play against a team of this quality, but I honestly believe that we have enough quality to cause any team problems and create chances.

“I think Thursday will be no different."

He added: “You have to understand the quality of player you're up against, it's going to be really high and there's going to be periods in the game where you're not going to have the ball.

“You have to be comfortable with that, and be ready to work and put a shift in. But there's going to be patches in the game where we will get possession and chances and we've got to be ready to take them."
