Big finish: United boss David Jeffrey

Ballymena United manager David Jeffrey has demanded one more huge performance from his men tomorrow night to seal a top-two finish in the Danske Bank Premiership.

The Sky Blues need just a point at home to third-placed Glenavon tonight to seal a runner-up spot and a financially lucrative Europa League place.

But the Lurgan Blues, who thumped champions Linfield 4-0 at Windsor Park on Saturday, are five points behind with two games remaining.

After tomorrow night's clash, United host Crusaders on Saturday while Glenavon are at home to Cliftonville.

"It's a ginormous game," said Jeffrey. "Football is such a topsy-turvy game, it is quite possible for us to be beaten by Glenavon and Crusaders.

"Glenavon will be looking for victory to take second spot from us. Both games will be massively tough. We've kept ourselves in a good position, that's all, we've maintained the gap and that's where we are at."
