Good first half, bad second, pretty much sums up this game. We played some nice stuff in the first half, a few dangerous crosses flung in from Dougie and O'Kane, Maccers was back on form, good passing, backheels and all, and we should have gone in at the break more than one ahead. Mannus had to make one good save when the DC striker, through on goal, knocked it too far ahead of him. I thought Dougie was our MOTM, bursting forward, getting great crosses in, heavily involved, and not too many mess-ups.

DC fans

The second half was just dire. DC drummers in the stand made a lot of noise, and there were a few cultural ditties from kids at the back of the Kop, but that was about it. Oh, and Noel scoring a peach with his right.

Oh, and we went with the Raven club to Dungannon Ladies' Xmas do in the evening, great night, good crack, appearances and speeches from DJ and Winkie, shame there weren't more players there.
