Glenavon return to action tomorrow afternoon as they host Cliftonville on the Premiership.

Following a very convincing win over Dollingstown on Tuesday, the Lurgan Blues hope to carry their momentum into the game tomorrow, presenting themselves a challenge for the Reds.

Speaking to Glenavon Media, the manager acknowledged the challenge ahead but believes Glenavon can come away with a positive result.

“Cliftonville are a tough team to play against,” said Gary

He added, “They finished second in the league last year and since then they have improved their squad.

“We know that it will not be easy and they’ll be coming here confident of getting a result, but we have to make sure we we go out and match them with our fight, our hunger and desire and hopefully we can take confidence from scoring a few goals against Dollingstown, take that into the game on Saturday and hopefully try and get another positive result.

“Our form at home, hasn’t been good enough. We lost against Newry and we drew against Carrick last week, on another occasion when we went down to 10 men. We were beaten by Larne when we were down to nine men in that game. It’s not acceptable, it’s not good enough.

“We have to try and correct it and try and make Mourneview Park a hard place to come and get results at.”

Cliftonville go into the game after scoring three goals past H&W Welders without reply in the League Cup on Tuesday. They currently sit 3rd in the league table.

Tickets can be bought right up until kick-off via the ‘Buy On-line’ tab above.


Gary will have a full squad at his disposal tomorrow with the exception of Andy Doyle who is injured.
