Quinn in warning to his men to keep it clean

Coleraine boss Marty Quinn saw his side achieve a much needed clean sheet last week - and he is looking for another one as he takes his side on another short trip today, this time to Limavady United.

The Bannsiders left Drumahoe with a 0-0 draw and although Quinn was disappointed not to have won the match, he was pleased at not conceding and is hoping for another blank at the Limavady Showgrounds - so long as the forwards find their shooting boots again.

"I was slightly disappointed not to have won last week, it was a game we deserved to win but their goalkeeper (Michael Doherty) had a superb game," said Quinn.

"On the plus side though we kept a clean sheet which was very satisfying because we have been conceding too many. I have always said that we will score goals - though that wasn't the case last week, thanks to their keeper - but at the back we have been leaking which means that we have lost out on a lot of points.

"If we want to push our way up the table we have to be tighter and that's what I am looking for against Limavady."

He added: "I have been impressed by what Limavady have done this year because they have put together a team very quickly and have been unlucky in a few games. One of these days they will win - hopefully not today."
