Glentoran striker Robbie McDaid has warned of the toll the "crazy" Irish League fixture schedule could take on players.

The Glens host Big Two rivals Linfield tonight in the first of nine matches scheduled this month.

McDaid said their focus is just on getting through the games, but stressed that a full summer break will be needed for players to recover. Without a proper interval, he fears the quality of the league could be damaged.
