Marty Quinn still up for Glenavon fight

Marty Quinn last night claimed that frustration got the better of him when he threatened to quit Glenavon last weekend.

Quinn was fuming after the Lurgan Blues lost 4-1 to Glentoran and spoke out to reveal that he would be considering his position at the club.

A vote of confidence from the board, which is often the worst thing that can happen to a manager, has however played a big part in Quinn’s readiness to continue to meet the challenge that he is faced with at Mourneview Park head-on.

“I had a very frustrating weekend and maybe I should have kept my mouth shut instead of saying things in the heat of the moment, but football is an emotional game,” said Quinn, who will be in the dug out for this afternoon’s home clash with Coleraine.

“I have received great support from within the club and really everything was put to bed in the space of 24 hours.

“Over the last few days I have felt quite secure in myself and the club and the support I have had has been quite humbling.

“There is still a job to be done at Glenavon and I am up for the fight.”

What has also frustrated Quinn is that after hitting the top of the league after starting the season with three successive wins, Glenavon now haven’t won since the end of August.

“I have been frustrated by the fact that we started so well and have dipped,” said Quinn.

“The players showed what they are capable of in those early weeks and need to step up again.

“Up until last Saturday it’s been the odd goal that’s decided games and we need to start scoring more regularly.”
