Same again says boss

Gary Hamilton is hoping his team can carry the form that crushed the Crues into Saturday’s clash with Ballymena United at The Showgrounds.

The Glenavon manager says that is what it will take to keep the momentum going.

“There is very little between Ballymena and ourselves,” said Gary. “Like us they have shown an improvement in league terms and on the day any one of the two teams can get a result.

“For us, I want to keep the momentum going. After a great win last week at Seaview the last thing we want is to fall flat at Ballymena.

“If we can produce that same performance again then we have a chance.

“The players need to believe in their ability and know they can go out and beat any team on their day.

“The recent win at Linfield means we have beaten every team since I came here. We now go into games knowing that we can compete.

“We have a good record against Ballymena but I don’t read too much into stats. You have to go out and deliver a winning performance on the pitch.”

Glenavon’s away form this season is superb - losing only one out of six - a defeat at Coleraine and taking 1o points out of a possible 18.

Victory on Saturday would also see Glenavon win three games in a row for the second time this season.

The only headache for Hamilton is a tactical one - he has a full squad to choose from apart from long term absentee Mark Patton.

The boss will most likely start with the same team that did so well last week and the changes will be on the bench.
