The JJB Sports Premiership season goes from bad to worse for Ballymena United boss Roy Walker and there is no sign the storm clouds are going to disappear.
A 3-0 defeat at home to Glenavon leaves the Sky Blues bottom of the league — it doesn’t get much worse than this.
In fact if Walker cannot transform fortunes quickly on the Braid, United will find themselves fighting to retain their top flight status.
Tony Grant put the Lurgan Blues ahead and substitute Eamon Murray doubled Glenavon's lead.
Grant sealed the three points in the 65th minute, leaving Walker to reflect: “It would not be right for me to walk away from the club despite the poor run.
“Obviously, the fans deserve much, much better and I hope that is what they get.”
