Up for it: Kris Lindsay has praised Glenavon’s never say die attitude

Glenavon skipper Kris Lindsay insists his team's Danske Bank Premiership title challenge will be fuelled by passion and desire.

The Lurgan Blues are the team to watch in terms of entertainment value and Gary Hamilton's squad oozes quality.

"We don't know when we're beaten," beamed Lindsay ahead of his side's trip to Windsor Park to face Linfield. "We have big characters. We go into every game with great belief. We know we will score. Even when we got the last-minute equaliser against the Reds, that wasn't good enough.

"Most teams would have shut up shop and taken a point, but not this team. We wanted to win and we kept going until that winner arrived. I thought it was what we deserved."

Lindsay is now relishing another confrontation against his former employers.

"We have great memories of our last visit there - the Irish Cup final win against the Blues," added the veteran centre-back.

"I'm sure they will be after a bit of revenge.

"It's never an easy venue, but it's now a superb stadium and it's every player's dream to play there. Linfield had a disappointing result against Coleraine last week, but they showed their character by grabbing a draw against the champions, Crusaders, on Saturday.

"But we have to focus on what we must do to get the points - let Linfield worry about us. It's a challenge we are looking forward to."
