Tony eager for Sky Blues to build on momentum in clash with Glenavon

By Alex Mills

Versatile Tony Kane concedes Ballymena United still have to hit the heights of last season, but believes they are gradually getting back into the groove.

The Sky Blues go on a revenge mission to Mourneview Park tomorrow, still smarting from a six-goal mauling back in August by Gary Hamilton's Glenavon.

Kane, however, insists there are shoots of recovery beginning to sprout and, even though they conceded three at home to Ards last week, United at last brought their shooting boots to the party by banging in six.

"Yes, it has been a disappointing start to the campaign, especially after the way we finished back in April, but we are improving," said Kane.

"Glenavon were flying up until midweek. I know Gary made a few changes to the side, but no one expected Ards to defeat them 4-0. If anything, it will make them even more hungry for this match. But we have to look after our own house. It will certainly be a massive test for us."
