David Jeffrey's Ballymena United are finally gaining some momentum.

And now we're just hoping he doesn't see that top line. Because it's talk like that that left the boss having a go at BBC presenter Mark Sidebottom after his side saw off Carrick Rangers 3-1 at the Showgrounds on Saturday.

The former Linfield manager loves a bit of banter and he was in top form in his post-match interview. Watch it here:

"There are some people within the press who don't realise that they keep talking about Ballymena gaining momentum," he said. "We're not looking for pats on the back but I'm getting a bit browned off with some particular people who are doing that, OK Mr Sidebottom?

"You see when you're doing your sum up, don't say it's taken Ballymena a bit of time to get going, because that's only one defeat in 10 games Marky-Boy. So there you go."

United travel to take on Ards next weekend.
