Ballymena 0 Linfield 4

IPL, Saturday 16th February, Showgrounds

Team: Mannus, Ervin, Murphy, Bailie, O’Kane, Mulgrew (Mouncey 67), Gault, Kearney, Curran, Ferguson, Thompson Subs not used : McCann, Stewart, Douglas, Dickson

Scorers: Kearney 2, Mouncey, Thompson

An immense performance, Linfield cofirming their potential as champions-elect, Oran scoring 2 goals against his former club in an impressive return to form. Here's some views:

I thought it was a very good team perfomance, with no real outstanding displays. Everyone worked their balls off and put in a solid, committed performance.

Nice to see Oran back to his old self, with a fine example of what we've been lacking for the majority of this season. Today, he was too clever for Ballymena and had them in knots, trying to keep up with his movement.

MOM though, once again, was Gaulty. If he could score more goals, he'd be unstoppable.

Watson, a transfer target of ours who has since signed a FT deal with Ballymena, apparently didn't impress at all, haven't seen him so can't judge. Still think we should give Billy Joe Burns a chance to impress, and see if sicknote Kris Lindsay can ever stay fit for more than 2 weeks at a time.

Cliftonville only draw, so we go top on goal difference!
