Glenavon's confident Kris Lindsay sets his sights high

Warrenpoint 1-3 Glenavon

By Gareth McCullough

Glenavon defender Kris Lindsay is targeting second position in the Danske Bank Premiership table come the end of the season after his side moved to within a point of third-placed Cliftonville with victory over Warrenpoint Town on Saturday.

Declan O'Brien helped himself to a double with headers in each half and, although Liam Bagnall pulled one back for the hosts, Mark Sykes stooped to head in the third late on to secure all three points.

"We want to finish as high up the league as we can," said Lindsay.

"We're looking at catching Cliftonville now, that's our immediate target. They are in our sights. If we catch them, then I don't see any reason why we can't go on and put a run together and catch Linfield and finish second.

"Our aim is to qualify for Europe. We've qualified for the last two years and we want to make it three in a row."

Town boss Barry Gray has already started preparations for next week's trip to face Ballymena United. He said: "Good luck to David Jeffrey in the job but, no disrespect to him, we certainly won't be going there setting up any differently than what we would be if he wasn't there.

"He'll get a reaction, there's no doubt about that, but he has to work with the same players and we simply feel we're better."

In Saturday's other game, a Stephen O'Flynn cracker earned Ballinamallard United a point after Miguel Chines had tapped Carrick Rangers in front at Solitude.
