Curran attention

Chris Curran says Cliftonville’s players must take responsibility for their poor start to the season – and set about addressing things immediately.

Ahead of tomorrow night’s County Antrim Shield First Round clash with Lisburn Distillery, the skipper has called on the Reds to rectify the issues that have dogged the opening six weeks of the campaign.

“If we’re going to call a spade a spade and be honest with ourselves, as a group we haven’t been good enough,” he admits.

“It’s great to have a midweek game and one that comes so soon after Saturday because we need to get back on the pitch and fix things.

“We still have a huge amount of work as a group of players and it’s those same mistakes we’re making, which is the frustrating part of it. When you look at the results and the late goals we’re conceding in games, it’s those lost points that have really hurt us.

“If you’re going to take anything from the first seven games, it’s the late goals that are taking points away from us and it’s reflected in where we are in the table.”
