Deane lauds squad efforts

COLERAINE goalkeeper Gareth Deane labelled the Bannsiders’ win against Warrenpoint Town as ‘massive’ as a brace from Curtis Allen sealed all three points at The Showgrounds…

The win moves the Stripes up to second in the Danske Bank Premiership as Allen’s first-half doubled edged out Barry Gray’s side on the Ballycastle Road.

Deane insists ‘confidence is brewing’ amongst the squad and heaped praise on Martin Gallagher for his performance in Tuesday night’s win against Carrick Rangers.

Deane – who was named Man of the Match – spoke about his double save after the break that helped preserve all three points.

The Bannsiders now face Portadown on Tuesday night and the shot stopper is eyeing another valuable three points.
