Linfield skipper Andy Waterworth admitted there will be no 'let-up' even though the Danske Premiership title race is now over.

David Healy's Blues had to settle for second place, which brings it's own reward in the form of a financial boost with European football next season now guaranteed.

Struggling Cliftonville will be the last team this season to enter the visiting dressing room for a league game at the plush new look Windsor Park on Saturday - and Waterworth insists his team will be going full blast for another three points.

"Cliftonville are always difficult to play against, but we've got a bit of momentum going at present and it's important to keep that going," said the striker who has found the net 33 times this season.

"We're coming off the back of a great result against Glentoran at the Oval. We knew our title chances were all but over going into that game, so the boss warned us about the possibility of complacency creeping in.

"He said players would be whipped off if it did, so the gaffer certainly stirred up the boys a bit. It will be the same against Cliftonville.

"We all know we are playing for our places in the cup final next month - or even a place in the squad. Quite a few players were left out last Saturday against Coleraine, including myself, and the boys came in did a great job.

"Kirk Millar played up front and he scored two. I was sweating for my place against Glentoran. I was glad to get the nod - and responded by scoring twice."
