Match Reaction

‘Good to get off the mark’ – Nixon

COLERAINE striker Stewart Nixon hopes that his first goal for the club is a sign of more things to come…

The 22-year-old grabbed the opener against Glenavon last night, before laying on an assist for James McLaughlin and won the Holley Optometrists Man of the Match award on his home debut.

The ex-Carrick Rangers ace admits he felt a little bit apprehensive and nervous in his first few weeks at the club but hopes playing for the Stripes will help take his game to the next level.

The Bannsiders face Ballymena United this weekend and Nixon is expecting a different atmosphere against one of his former clubs.
