Glendermott captain Gordon Montgomery says the postponement of Saturday’s North West Premiership relegation decider against Bready will add even more spice to the game when the teams eventually meet.
The clubs had provisionally agreed to bring the game at Magheramason forward a week from September 7. However, Bready subsequently requested that the match revert to the original date.
Montgomery said: “That will add a bit more spice to the game. We feel there is more pressure on Bready than there is on us. At the start of the season everyone expected us to be down there whereas no-one expected Bready to be.”
Glendermott will trail Bready by a point going into that final game.
They were unfortunate to lose both of two tight matches against Donemana last weekend, though the equation remains the same for both clubs. Defeat will mean relegation, a victory and you must still beat the second-placed club in the Championship in a subsequent play-off.
Montgomery added: “We beat them fairly easily at The Rectory so that gives us some confidence.”
“We have a few guys coming into form over the last few matches, we beat Strabane and could have beaten Donemana. Bob Robinson has come into form, the pro (Gavon Christian) has come into
Montgomery confirmed that Christian has agreed to return to Glendermott in 2014, irrespective of what division they are in.
