Glenavon boss Gary Hamilton has demanded more hard work from his players as he looks to build on Saturday’s hammering of Ballymena United.
The Lurgan Blues romped to an emphatic 7-0 victory as they ran riot against hapless United at Mourneview Park.
Hamilton attributed the win to the industry of his players, and he has demanded more of the same ahead of Tuesday night’s rearranged Danske Bank Premiership clash with Glentoran at the Oval.
“We have plenty of quality in the side, but as we discovered against Lisburn Distillery recently quality doesn’t win you games alone,” Hamilton said.
“Against Ballymena we worked hard from the start and the quality was able to shine through in the end.
“To be honest we had been threatening to put a team away but we hadn’t been clinical enough.
“On Saturday everything clicked and we took our chances, and it was a brilliant result.”
Saturday’s landslide win eased Glenavon’s relegation fears, but Hamilton is refusing to take anything for granted as he looks to avoid being dragged into a survival scrap this season.
“We have four massive games before the split, so we will take those games first and see where we are after that,” he added.
“We play Glentoran away followed by home games against Cliftonville and Coleraine, and then we have Portadown away.
“The teams below us have easier fixtures on paper, so it is going to be a pivotal couple of weeks before the split.
“We want to try and be 15 points clear of the bottom two clubs when the split arrives, so we know we have a big job on our hands.”
