Glenavon will go into Saturday’s clash against Linfield confident they can repeat their success of last season at Mourneview Park.

Matchwinner on that occasion was Eoin Bradley and the striker, who netted a dramatic winner last week at Stangmore Park, is looking forward to the clash.

“The way we are playing at the minute we don’t fear anyone,” said Eoin. “However, if we don’t perform then we will get beaten.

“You always have to be at your best to beat teams like Linfield, Cliftonville or Crusaders. This season we have managed to beat the teams in the bottom half, something we were not able to do last season.

“We are a top six team, but we will keep our feet firmly on the ground. It would be great to win four or five games in a row and you never know where that will take you, but we only focus on one game at a time. The manager drills that into us all the time.

“The big thing this season is how well the squad have been dealing with injuries. We have four key players that would start every week like David Elebert, Ciaran Martyn, Kevin Braniff and James Singleton out and yet we have still been able to get good results.

“Linfield will be smarting a bit after their defeat last week, but we will only worry about what we have to do.”

Manager Gary Hamilton expects Linfield will be even harder to beat.

“They are coming off a bad result but than will not make them any weaker - we can expect a really tough game,” said Hamilton.

“They are at the top end of the table for a reason and while we don’t fear any team, we know we cannot afford to make any mistakes.

“Seven points out of a possible nine sets us up nicely for the encounter.”
