Game on for Paddy

Paddy McLaughlin anticipates a typically entertaining encounter when Cliftonville play Dungannon Swifts tomorrow – but has warned against taking anything for granted against a side struggling for form.

While the Reds travel to Stangmore Park seeking a first win in three Danske Bank Premiership outings, Dean Shiels’ side have lost their last four League games and McLaughlin is well aware of the threat such a wounded animal poses.

“They’re a brilliant footballing side,” he said.

“Fair play to Dean Shiels, I know people will look at their results and doubt what he’s doing but his ideas and his philosophies are excellent and he’s sticking to his guns.

“It’s always going to be a good football game. Hopefully it’s an entertaining game and hopefully we can come out on top. I know they need a couple of results, so we need to be on our guard to make sure they don’t get one against us because points are precious at this stage of the season.

“Any time we play Dungannon, it’s always an entertaining game and I don’t expect this one to be any different.”

Dungannon Swifts FC have advised the Club of new traffic and parking arrangements that will be in place for tomorrow’s fixture.

The road immediately outside the ground, the Far Circular Road, will be closed from 2pm to traffic approaching from the M1 via the Moy Road. Supporters arriving from that direction after this time are asked to park at suitable locations on or near the Moy Road.

Dungannon have also informed us that there will be a minute’s silence prior to the game and fans approaching the ground as kick-off approaches are asked to be mindful of this as they enter the venue, where cash turnstiles will be in operation.
