Linfield 2 Dungannon Swifts 1

IPL, Windsor Park, Wednesday 20th February 2008

Team: Mannus, Ervin, Murphy, Bailie, O’Kane, Mulgrew (Mouncey 66), Gault, Curran, Kearney (McAreavey 55), Ferguson (Stewart 70), Thompson
Subs not used : Douglas, Dickson

Scorers: Kearney, Thompson

So Linfield move 3 points clear at the top of the league with a hard-fought win over a notoriously tricky opponent in our game in hand over from the CIS final. Signs are promising. Match reports:

That was hard to watch.

Thompson missed far too many EASY chances and Kearney also missed a sitter.

Spike played well enough.

We played good football at times, and could have easily scored 3 or 4 more, if Thompson had of have had his shooting boots on. He could have scoed at least 5 himself

Midfield I thought were all quite quiet, even Gaulty for a change, although we always looked to be in control.

Defence was shaky(ish) and McAllister was pulling them all over the place

Overall, it's a case of job done, but we can and will play much better than that.


DC up next.
