Still got it: Linfield striker Andy Waterworth after scoring against Carrick earlier this season

Linfield hero Andy Waterworth has revealed that David Healy is prolonging his career even though the striker and manager have their disagreements.

Waterworth is 34 but despite his advancing years he remains Linfield's main man up front and is expected to lead the line for the Blues in their Irish Premiership clash away to Portadown today.

In three league games to date this season, Waterworth has grabbed four goals, helping the champions to the top of the table. While he is a potent threat in the box, Healy has also encouraged the forward to drop deeper with the ex-Glentoran ace showing a different side to his game.
