Bankies boss Gordon Moffat described his side’s 2-0 win over Benburb on Saturday as “absolutely massive”.

Aaron Millar scored a quick-fire double late in the first half as Bankies moved up – albeit temporarily – to fifth spot.

He said: “That’s an absolutely massive three points on the board.

“We spoke before the game about keeping up the momentum, because before today we had only one defeat in six in the league.

“We were keen to make it seven, since we knew that would create a 15 point gap between us and Benburb. We understand other teams who weren’t playing have some games in hand, but at this stage of the season, jumping up to fifth is massive.

“That being said, we were pretty patchy if I’m honest and I don’t think we really played for the first 30 or 35 minutes. It was only then that we started to get to grips with the game and realising how we could affect their three at the back.

“Nicky Little, being the intelligent player he is, was starting to drift to the outside while Cammy McClair started drifting inside. That seemed to unsettle their left centre back and we got the two goals from that.

“We were trying to get the message on from the touchline that was how we could get at them, and all credit to the boys for sorting themselves out quickly.

“Beyond that ten minute spell at the end of the first half, I didn’t think we were great. We lost our way a bit in the second half, but once we brought Jordan Kennedy on we were professional, managed the game well, and did enough to see it out.

“I’ve said on numerous occasions that not conceding a lot of goals has been the principles I’ve built successful teams around.

“It’s been frustrating to see us not be able to do that, so to now see some progress and have three clean sheets in our last four is huge. I don’t just mean huge for the keeper and the back four, it’s important for the squad.”
