Barry Gray wants Cliftonville to right the wrongs of their most recent clash with Dungannon Swifts when the teams lock horns at Solitude tomorrow.
The County Tyrone outfit claimed League Cup Quarter Final joy just a week-and-a-half ago and, though revenge is not the priority in this weekend’s Danske Bank Premiership encounter, the boss is keen to see an improvement in terms of both performance and result.
“We failed to do the things we should have done and paid the price of conceding an equaliser before losing on penalties,” recalls Gray.
“I’m a great believer that, when things aren’t going your way, you roll the sleeves up and work hard to fix things. If it’s not turning in your favour, you work harder – it’s as simple as that.
“Believe me when I say that myself and the staff are grafting tirelessly with the players on and off the training pitch to address our problems. The players have been very hard on themselves too but I don’t want them to question their ability – they have that in abundance.”
