Sacrifices worthwhile

COLERAINE midfielder Josh Carson insists being disciplined on Christmas Day was well worth it as the Bannsiders ran out 2-0 victors against Ballymena United…

First-half goals from Conor McKendry and Matthew Shevlin eased Oran Kearney’s men to all three points at The Showgrounds, with Carson insisting that sacrificing the usual Christmas preparations was well worth it.

Carson put in another energetic performance in the heart of the midfield but was quick to praise the entire squad for their contributions and labelled the second-half as professional as they saw the game out with a clean sheet.

The Stripes face Linfield next at Windsor Park and Carson highlighted that the game will be between two in-form teams.
