Dungannon Swifts 1 Glenavon 1

Dungannon secured a priceless point, which most will agree they didn't deserve — including Swifts defender Adam McMinn – in their game against Glenavon


“At both Portadown and Glentoran we played much better than losers, but ended up with nothing,” said McMinn said.

“Glenavon had us under an immense amount of pressure and were easily the better side, but while we struck late to snatch a point, we could even have sneaked a win near the end.”

During a dour game, there were few chances before Diarmuid O'Carroll netted from the spot on 76 minutes. Swifts responded nine minutes later through a Joe McCready (pictured) thunderbolt.

McMinn, however, believes Glenavon were fortunate to get their spot-kick.

“The penalty awarded was debatable, a real marginal decision,” he said.

“There is no doubt I did make contact, but it was on the free-kick side of the box. That said, justice was seen to be done as we scored an equaliser soon after.”

Mourneview boss Marty Quinn said: “We should have won the game three or four nil. That is the same as last week and the week before — and the week before that too.”
