Flipping great night for goals as Dungannon Swifts are hit for six

By Stuart McKinley

The Irish League went goal-crazy as Linfield hit Dungannon Swifts for six to move up to second in the Danske Bank Premiership, while Glenavon hammered Carrick Rangers 5-1.

The Blues' 6-0 win wasn't enough to satisfy manager David Healy, however, as the Northern Ireland legend revealed that he dished out a half-time rollicking, - even though they were already 3-0 up at that stage.

"We were way off the mark with our first-half performance," said Healy.

"The players were told in no uncertain terms that it wasn't good enough. I told them they needed to up their level and I think they did that. I asked them to be more ruthless.

"If Crusaders keep winning, we have to keep winning. We can only keep doing our job."
