Tomorrow night sees Glenavon make the trip to Stangmore Park for what Gary describes as a “big game” for the boys.

Glenavon goes into the game hot off the heels of a disappointing 3 nil loss to an in-form Linfield side at the weekend.

“If we’re going to draw games or win games, you need to score goals and you need to work their goalkeeper and that was the big disappointment.

“There’s no point in crying about it, you just have to get on with it and roll the sleeves up and keep working hard. Tuesday’s a big game coming up and we have to be right.

“We have to get a reaction from them on Tuesday. They have to be going into the game looking to react themselves and make amends.”

This game sees Ross Hunter available for selection again with McCloskey, Haughey and Doran still being unavailable. Unfortunately, Jack O’Mahony’s name has been added to the injury list after hurting his ankle ligaments against Linfield on Saturday. Mark Stafford and Andrew Doyle will also miss out tomorrow night. Singleton returns to the Reserves on Monday night, however, he may still lack match fitness for Dungannon.

Dungannon have advised that fans can pay at the gate.


Glenavon secured quite a convincing 4-2 win over Dungannon Swifts at home, back in October.

The first 20 minutes saw both teams with a goal apiece, only for Matthew Fitzpatrick to secure the lead on the 22nd minute. A further goal from Fitzpatrick and Campbell saw the Lurgan side sitting comfortably at 4-1. McBrien put the ball into an open Glenavon net on the 83rd minute to secure the Swifts’ second of the night, but the boys saw out the rest of the game, sealing their second victory of the Season.
