“I think our performance was good and we worked hard for each other and looked like a team” Stevie Moan Oct 30, 2017

Ballymena Game

This was probably the best game of the season which I have been involved in because it was end to end with goals & tackles going in and it was hard to catch a breath. But I felt we were overall the better team and maybe deserved to take all 3 points. However, we were happy with a point especially as were playing away from home. We started the game poorly and failed to clear our lines and we went one down. Now it would have been easy for us to have folded and say; ‘here we go again’. But we picked ourselves up gaining character and showed determination to get the equaliser and then go on to take took the lead from a free kick. We got some well-deserved luck when Conor McMenamin hit a free kick which went through everyone and found its way to the net. Ballymena got an equaliser but then again, we showed the confidence to take the game to them and got back in front through another goal from Lorcan Forde. I thought Lorcan had an excellent game and was causing problems all day. To concede in the last minute of normal time was a killer blow but were happy with a point. Overall, I think our performance was good and we worked hard for each other and looked like a team.

Dungannon Swifts

This week we play Dungannon. This is a home match and I think we are well capable of taking all the points in this game. We played them recently in the cup and they beat us with a last-minute goal. This was a game we should have won but we did not take our chances and their keeper was in fine form. I believe if we can play like we did in that game and stay tight at the back, we should go on to win the game.
