Loughgall 0 Linfield 3

JJB Sports Irish Cup 5th Round, Lakeview Park, Saturday 12th January 2008

Team: Mannus, Ervin, O’Kane, Lindsay, Murphy, Gault (Kearney 77), McAreavey (Dickson 83), Downey, Curran, Thompson (Ferguson 79), Stewart. Subs not used : Douglas, McCann

Scorers: Thompson 48,72, Stewart 84

EBB's report:

Tommy Stewart partners Peter Thompson upfront, end result? We play the ball into feet and look a much better (and dangerous) team. To say it's about time, is an understatement


I thought we played well for the majority of the game and certainly never looked to be in any danger of not winning.


Stewart (obviously ) He brings that extra pace and movement, that we've been crying out for, for weeks. His goal was brillaint, much like his all round game.

Conor Downey. Depsite not being a right midfielder, he put in an outstanding display. Simple passing and moving is what he is all about. Good to have him back.

Thompson, who much like Stewart worked tirelessly and didn't do an awful lot wrong. 2 more goals and a 15 minute rest

Gaulty... One word to describe him today (and the last few weeks) Awesome. Didn't put a foot wrong and was at the heart of almost everything. If only he could score

Can't actually find any negatives, although it wasn't a totally faultless performance.

Loughgall's bullying tactics certainly didn't work too well when Gault got into his stride :D
