Conor McMenamin says that whichever players Michael Press selects for duty tomorrow must step up to the plate.
Cliftonville will bid to arrest their recent run of poor form when they take on Glenavon at Solitude and, while a repeat of the recent defeat of the same opposition would go down very well, McMenamin insists the Reds must be fully focused on delivering a cohesive performance rather than reflecting on last month’s victory.
“The last time we played Glenavon, we did well,” he recalls.
“It’s going to be tough, they’re a good side and play nice football. They’ve some great players.
“The victory last month counts for nothing. We’ll have to be on our game and everyone will have to perform to get anything – nevermind three points.”
