‘Running stats will be through the roof’ – Deane

GARETH Deane admits the Bannsiders ‘had to give the best account of themselves’ after recent defeats to Linfield and Glenavon…

The shot stopper remarked that the players had been disappointed with second-half performances in both of the games and that they had a point to prove in the 0-0 draw against Larne.

Deane added that he didn’t remember much about his double save in stoppage time that thwarted Thomas Maguire from stealing all three points at the death.

The ex-QPR trainee joked that Andy Scott will need a defibrillator after his energetic performance ahead of the post-split fixtures which start away to Cliftonville next month.
