“Society is opening up again and it’s important we get some sense of normality back into local football"The Danske Bank Premiership has been played behind closed doors since January, but calls are growing for fans to be allowed back in as positive cases fall across Northern Ireland.
Oran Kearney praised Coleraine's never-say-die spirit on Tuesday night despite admitting their title challenge had suffered a fatal blow against Glentoran.
The Bannsiders came from behind to earn a late 1-1 draw at the Oval.
It is the third time the clubs have drawn in the Premiership this season, three results Kearney says detonated hopes of lifting the title.
Linfield - who beat Crusaders 3-1 on Tuesday - now lead the Premiership by eight points with just three games remaining.
Coleraine remain in second spot, one point ahead of the Glens and still in an automatic European spot.
"It has been a trilogy," Kearney told Coleraine's social media channels when reflecting on the draws with Glentoran.

"They have been three real wars, and tough wars. The draws have killed the league; they have killed the campaign. The only winners out of the three games have been Linfield.
"In saying that, in all three games we have gone behind and we have had an answer, which speaks volumes for the group that we have."
Coleraine went behind to Rory Donnelly's header in the 78th minute, but snatched a point through Stephen Lowry's equaliser one minute from time.
"We hung in the game, and it is important. We talk about it all the time and we see it all the time in football, you have purple patches and opportunities, and we had opportunities tonight," Kearney added.
"Glentoran are a good side and the full-time approach has made such a difference to them. They started with four top quality Irish League strikers on the pitch tonight who all have serious firepower."
Coleraine now have an 11-day break before returning to Premiership action on May 15 against Crusaders.
"Crusaders will be a huge game. They put us out of the Irish Cup so we know of their firepower and quality," Kearney said.
