‘We still have so much to play for’ – OK

ORAN Kearney admits it was important that Bannsiders started to pick up points after yesterday’s 0-0 draw against Larne at The Showgrounds…

The Stripes would have the majority of the chances in the first-half through Aaron Jarvis, Dean Jarvis and Conor McKendry, with Larne going close after the restart via Joe Thomson and Thomas Maguire.

Kearney remarked that manner of the performance was what he wanted to see from his players and that they dug in with ten men following the dismissal of Aaron Jarvis on 65 minutes.

With the post-split schedule set to get underway next month, Kearney stressed the importance of picking up as many points as possible in a bid to secure a home tie in a European play-off tie.
