Institute goal king Brown hails work ethic

By Colin Speer

Institute match winner Paul Brown insisted their work ethic secured them maximum points on Saturday.

The ex-Limavady United striker headed home for the 10-men six minutes from time to seal a second win again Glenavon in the space of a few weeks.

“Like the majority of our games this season everyone worked their socks off and we got the deserved win,” remarked Brown.

“Right from Michael Doherty to our substitutes Ruairi Boyle and John O’Loughlin everyone gave their all. Obviously whenever James (Quigley) was sent-off we knew that we were going to have to work harder, but to be honest Glenavon nearly really threatened us even though they had a man extra.”

The big striker who set a target of 20 goals this year, scored his 10th goal of the season and his fifth in the league to net ’Stute’s late winner.

“Sometimes you get lucky and on Saturday that’s what happened to me,” joked Brown.

“I saw that their defender was struggling to head the ball clear so I decided to run towards their keeper, thankfully for me his header fell into the six yard box and I got up well to head home.

“I knew that I hadn’t fouled the keeper but sometimes the referee disallows those type of goals but thankfully for me he didn’t.”
