A draw the least we deserved – OK

ORAN Kearney believes his side were worth at least a point after striking late to salvage a 2-2 draw against Glentoran…

The Bannsiders had led 1-0 thanks to Dean Jarvis’ close range strike, however, Glentoran turned the game on its head with two goals either side of half time through an own goal and Conor McMenamin’s world class finish.

Kearney credited his players yet again for playing until the end which was rewarded when Shevlin fired in from Eamon Fyfe’s header but believes they could have got more from the game if they finished more of their chances.

The boss was unable to give an injury on Rodney Brown’s injury after the defender had to be substituted and acknowledged that his side is currently patched up in areas due to injuries.

With Newry City rolling into town on Tuesday night, Kearney admits he has been impressed since their return to the top flight.
