Match Highlights vs Linfield

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ defeat to Linfield can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…

A solitary goal from Niall Quinn three minutes from time would see the Blues leave The Showgrounds with all three points.

The first-half would belong to the visitors in terms of chances as Matthew Clarke, Eetu Vertainen, Kirk Millar and Chris McKee all went close to breaking the deadlock.

However, the Stripes would see the greater attacking threat after the interval as Andy Scott forced Chris Johns into a world class save, with Conor McKendry also testing the ex-Coleraine stopper.

Despite the hosts looking like netting first, Linfield would secure the win on 87 minutes as Kyle Lafferty’s cross wasn’t cleared which allowed Quinn to drill the ball into the back of the net under a sea of bodies.
