Two goals from Miguel Chines helped Carrick Rangers get their Premiership return off to a winning start.

The Portuguese attacker opened the scoring in the ninth minute and then converted from the penalty spot just before half-time, rendering Ally Teggart's late header for Dungannon Swifts a mere consolation.

"It was important to get off to a good start and this is a big three points," said Carrick boss Gary Haveron.

"Dungannon are a good side, they pass the ball, and 10 minutes into the game you're thinking 'this is the level we need to get to'.

"But I was delighted we took our chances when they came."

This was a wake-up call for a Dungannon side entering their 13th season of top flight football and boss Darren Murphy conceded they deserved nothing.

"Too many people today just didn't turn up - that's the bottom line," he said.

"It's game one of a long season. If it was game 30 it might be different, but I'm not going to panic at this stage."
