Lowry boys are ready to rumble

By Graham Luney

Brothers Stephen and Philip Lowry say family ties will be forgotten for 90 explosive minutes this afternoon when Linfield and Crusaders clash in a Danske Bank Premiership title showdown.

Linfield midfielder Stephen and Crusaders ace Philip will have very different goals at Windsor Park, where an away win would extend the champions' lead at the top to seven points with only four games remaining.

"Given what is at stake, family connections will be forgotten over the 90-plus minutes and I would tackle him as hard as anyone else," said Philip.

Stephen said: "During the game I don't think about it, we are both very competitive and obviously as brothers wouldn't want to lose that individual battle against each other. It's a massive game for both teams."
