Lisburn Distillery 'will cut out mistakes'

Lisburn Distilelry keeper Philip Matthews says he and his team mates are already over their 6-1 mauling by Glentoran last week, after a tough training session just a few days later.

The Whites were heavily criticised by boss Tommy Wright for the way in which they conceded those goals and they felt his anger on the training pitch on Monday night.

“We needed to get it out of our system quickly and Tommy put us through a really tough session on Monday night which I think helped.

“Certainly the players know now that if we make the same mistakes that we made last week, again, then we’ll be beasted again and the boys don’t want that.”

Matthews reiterated Wright’s post-match assessment that the scoreline flattered the Glens and, with Crusaders next up tomorrow, the keeper knows they have to tighten up.

“Crusaders are a more physical team and will play differently to Glentoran — probably looking at picking up the second ball off Michael Halliday or Jordan Owens,” the Whites goalkeeper added.

“It’s a different task we face but we have been working hard on a few things to make sure we cut out the mistakes.”
