Apologies for the lack of updates during the game today as we were having some technical issues with the internet at MVP 🙁

Paddy McCourt made his home debut but had to come off just before half time with a slight calf strain.

After a fairly lack-lustre first half Glenavon turned on the style in the second period and, after Rhys Marshall opened the scoring three minutes after the restart, further goals by Joel Cooper, a second from Marshall again and Mark Patton sealed what in the end was a comfortable win. It could have been a different story if former Glenavon player Brian McCaul had put away the best chance of the first 45 minutes but once Glenavon got their noses in front early in the second period the result never looked in doubt.

17: Joel Cooper cuts inside onto his right foot and his low shot is turned round the post by Brian Neeson.

18: Kris Lindsay replaces Simon Kelly who seems to have picked up a hamstring injury.

32: Paddy McCourt curls a 30 yard free kick narrowly wide.

33: Best chance of the game so far falls to Carrick as Brian McCaul shows a great touch to bring Gareth McKeown’s free kick down 8 yards out but he lashes his shot well over the bar.

48: 1-0 Rhys Marshall takes a throw in on the right and picks up the ball from Declan O’Brien’s layoff to him on the right side of the box. He carries the ball across the edge of the area before cutting back onto his right and smashing a shot into the top corner from the centre of the ‘D’ leaving Brian Neeson rooted to the spot.

73: 2-0 Joel Cooper fires a low drive across Neeson and into the bottom corner. This time it was Guy Bates with the lay-off, releasing Cooper to run into the box and fire left-footed across the Carrick keeper.
