Match Reaction

OK ’embarrassed’ by Reds display

ORAN Kearney pulled no punches after the Bannsiders were beaten by Cliftonville at Solitude last night…

After trailing to Joe Gormley’s first-half goal, the Stripes failed to turn up after the break and conceded four times after the break as Gormley completed his hat-trick alongside a brace from Ben Wilson.

Kearney apologised to the supporters for the performance and believes a few of his squad threw the towel in after conceding the second goal.

The Stripes boss also provided an injury update on several members of his squad and has demanded a reaction as Coleraine host Crusaders on Saturday.
