Moneyslane manager David Johnstone praised his side’s ‘superb performance’ following their 6-2 win over Dungannon Tigers.

Johnstone commented: “Absolutely superb performance by our lads today.

“I thought we showed real determination today to win a game against a good team.

“When Dungannon equalised for 2-2 you need players to react and we did, scoring another two before half time. We not only out scored Dungannon Tigers but I thought we won the physical battle as well.

“A special mention for keeper Stephen White who produced two very important saves at key times and I am delighted with his contribution since joining us.

“A great free kick by Sparky, Brian Quilty was sublime and Darragh Peden again leading the back four well and both Mark Ervine and Johnny Kernaghan doing well when coming on.

“MoM today had to go to Gregg Harrison, not just for his hat-trick, but he ran the Tigers defence ragged the whole game.

“I am pleased the players once again put on a great performance for our loud and proud home fans.”
