Time will tell if we can play all four strikers, says Cliftonville manager

By Gareth Hanna

Cliftonville boss Barry Gray still isn't convinced his side can't succeed with all four of his star strikers on the pitch.

The manager came under fire after starting Joe Gormley, Daniel Hughes, Jay Donnelly and Rory Donnelly in the 3-1 defeat to Glenavon.

A week on and both Jay Donnelly and Gormley were consigned to the bench. And the latter responded in perfect fashion, netting a double to secure a 2-1 win over Carrick after coming on at half-time.

"Everyone's been telling me that we can't continue to play four strikers," Gray told BBC Radio Ulster's Saturday Sportsound. "Whether that's right or wrong, only time will tell but Joe's been struggling for a few goals so far. Today was a case of taking him out of the limelight a wee bit but the attitude he showed after not being in the starting XI, his desire and willingness were superb.

"He hasn't been getting that bit of luck but today, credit to him, he made it happen and we're all delighted to see him do that."

The victory moves the Reds up to sixth in the table.

"It's a huge result," said Gray. "Everyone's well aware of the situation we're in. The players know the pressure on them to get the three points and they've done that today. We're delighted."
