"I'm obviously pleased to get off the mark. I was just inside their half and spotted the keeper off his line. The manager has strengthened the squad, bringing in some experienced players and I think we are looking well."
I thought we stuck in there. The effort and enthusiasm were super. We created chances against a top-class Cliftonville side. I've just told the lads that if they can apply themselves like that every week we will do OK.
The performance and result was pleasing, it was just the scoreline which let us down a little bit. We had lots of crosses and shots, but just lacked the good decision at the right time which could have given us more goals, but that is just me being picky. Nacho Novo did well. He showed glimpses but there is more to come from him."
The boys played really well and that is what we needed because we had not won our opening league game for six years. Everybody did their job and we played superbly. The manager has just said the front three were brilliant and of course that helps.

Former Northern Ireland winger Paddy McCourt goes off injured at Mourneview Park just before half-time. He's the second Glenavon casualty as defender Simon Kelly had to be replaced earlier.
Kirk Millar restores Linfield's lead in County Fermanagh and what a goal it is. Millar lobs keeper James McGrath from just inside the Ballinamallard half. Well worth clicking on the play tab here. Four minutes until half-time.
