Linfield manager David Jeffrey is demanding the ‘same again’ when his team entertain fast-improving Glenavon in tonight’s rearranged Premiership clash at Windsor Park.
The Blues bounced back to the top of the table following Friday’s victory over Big Two rivals Glentoran, but were subsequently replaced by current title holders Cliftonville 24 hours later.
It’s now a two-horse title race and Jeffrey admits his boys can’t afford to slip up in what is potentially a banana skin outing.
“It will be another tough game against Glenavon,” he said. “They are doing very well under Gary Hamilton.
“He has a good mixture of youth and experience and they managed another good result against Crusaders at Seaview on Friday night.
“They are a side whom I admire greatly, but there is no point going to the Oval and performing heroically and then losing focus for Monday night.”
Hamilton’s boys are eyeing up a top six place and will travel to Windsor looking for full points.
“We now have a group of players that know how to win football games,” he said. “I was thrilled with the performance against Crusaders - we’ll be going to Windsor oozing with confidence.”
