Will you?" Me "Banbridge normally play an offensive formation so as they say the best defence is a good offence."

Preview: A good match in store for us against a Banbridge side that have started brightly, I'm hoping to get off the mark at home today. Bad news for us is that Amos has picked up a hernia and will be out for a month so O'Neill gets to play up-front again. 11 - Templeton plays a nice ball for Carlin and his shot is blocked for a corner. 15 - Derry shoots first time and it's just wide. 18 - Carlin's free-kick is met by a Thompson header and Ryan makes a good catch. 23 - Derry shoots from distance and it's just over the bar. 25 - Tracey's blocked shot comes to O'Neill who hits it wide under pressure. 33 - Carlin's free-kick is headed by Thompson and McArdle clears off the line! The ball falls to Carlin again who shoots but it's wide. 40 - Templeton sets up Daly who shoots from quite a way out and it's over but not by far. 42 - Anderson replaces Thompson against his former club. 45+3 - GOAL! The officials said there would be 2 minutes of added time but it's Banbridge who lead against the run of play, Teggart's cross should be an easy take for Brennan but he misses it and Grant scores probably the easiest goal of his life. 45+4 - Half time We are really unlucky to be behind in this match, the match officials have screwed us for the umpteenth time but oh well. We can still turn it around. 45 - Brady and Stewart replace Carlisle and Teggart at half-time. 45 - King finds Grant but his shot is over. 61 - Devlin brings down Craig and gets a yellow. 61 - Grant's free-kick hits the cross-bar and bounces back out! 62 - Feeney is on for McArdle. 66 - Derry's long ball finds Grant who drags it wide from a tight angle. 67 - Douglas trips Derry and is booked. 68 - Feeney has a go from distance but it's over. 77 - GOAL! Banbridge seal it, Stewart's corner is headed in by Craig. 90+2 - Full time A poor second half performance and once again, we can't get a point at home, so disappointing. We go down to 11th now.
