We picked up our first point on the road following a 0-0 draw away to Beragh Swifts on Saturday. In truth, we should have been out of sight at half time, having missed several glorious chances and a penalty.
Our first chance fell to Jordan Cadden as he burst through on goal and tried to go round the keeper, but the keeper was able to tackle Cadden with his feet and pounce on the loose ball. Sam Lindsay was then in one goal when he was tripped just as he was about to pull the trigger. Unfortunately, Cadden seen his effort turned around the post.
Lindsay again found himself one and one, this time rounding the keeper but from a tight angle could only hit the side netting. Lindsay almost redeemed himself immediately but his close range header went agonisingly wide. So we went in at the break scoreless despite dominating for large periods.
The second half was a much more even contest, Paul McGrath and Ryan O’Keefe forcing the Beragh keeper in to fine saves, whilst McGrath fired just wide following a fine run, and Ryan Lindsay fired over when well placed. At the other end Beragh were asking questions but we held firm, with Jamie Coalter putting in a Man of the Match performance at centre back and Sean Keenan excelling at left back.
Time will tell whether it’s a point gained or two points dropped, but we aim to build on a solid performance and a clean sheet when we face Enniskillen Town on Saturday at Drumad.
