Beaney's expecting 'money to be tough

By John Flack

Pegasus are expecting their stiffest test of the season to date when they tackle Ballymoney in the only Premier League clash of the day at Queen's.

Later on the Irish Senior Cup holders will know their fate in the third round draw, as will their opponents.

Pegasus, Ballymoney and Randalstown have all received byes as they are seeded on the basis of last season's league placings.

First things first though and Suzanne Beaney last night warned that Ballymoney will be no pushovers despite a 7-0 drubbing they were on the wrong end of at the Joey Dunlop Centre last term.

"They were severely under strength then and the 1-0 we got at Queen's was about as close as the scoreline suggests," said the Pegasus striker. "Angela Platt was in great form I remember although I managed to beat her for the only goal of the game.

"They have been playing well this season and scoring a lot of goals just like us so it should be an interesting game."

Pegasus expect to have the influential Arlene Boyles back on board after a hand injury which sidelined her for several weeks.

"That will be a great boost for us and it will be great to have her back in the side," Beaney added. "We've missed her ability at penalty corners and we squandered eight against Armagh alone."

With Randalstown sitting out the action Pegasus would go clear at the top of the table if they were to win.
