Another game that was there for the taking but due to our lack of fire power we ended up with nothing. Blame poor defending for the two goals but with the amount of possession and, many I say, some excellent play especially in the first half we should have been ahead before Cliftonville even threatened us. Another dubious refereeing decision cost us the lead in the first half which was littered with a lot of free kicks, mainly given away by the opposition with some crude tackles that mostly went unpunished (but of course a tame tackle by Jamie Mulgrew incredibly warranted a yellow card).Only 6 points adrift so it could be worse but we have to solve our lack of making and taking chances when we get in the opposition box - and fast!
