All eyes turn to the visit of Glenavon on Saturday after last night’s League Cup semi final.

Ballinamallard know that points are more important in their season to ensure their place at the top table in football in Northern Ireland.

“The league is really important for us.  Glenavon were flying high at the start of the season, but have lost a bit of momentum in recent weeks.

“They are an experienced side and have goalscorers all over the pitch. They are really able to score from anywhere and are a big threat to any side going forward.

“We know all that, but we have to concentrate on our job and what we want to do.

“We’re at home and looking for a good result. Our home form has been excellent lately and we want that to continue on Saturday,” said Anderson.

“When you look at our form lately we have come on leaps and bounds. Two months ago we were sitting two points from the bottom. We’ve turned that around and have moved up the table.

“The boys have got that hunger and commitment back and they have a real desire to win games and move on up the table,” he said.

“I’m confident we can do that, but we must show a real ruthlessness in front of goal and show that we can boss games against sides higher up the table,” said the Ballinamallard manager.

Defender Leon Carters looks to be on the way back from long term injury. He played for the Reserves on Saturday alongside long term injury player midfielder James McKenna, who also looks to be on his way back.

Cathal Beacom has had good news following a scan on his knee, giving him the all clear to return to training.

It’s a busy Christmas for the Ferney side who will have a really tough one against relegation threatened Dungannon Swifts on December 27.

Then it Cliftonville away and Crusaders at home at the start of the New Year.
