Welcome break for Bannsiders

Welcome break for Bannsiders thumbnailGlenavon's Andrew Mitchell and Coleraine's Josh Carson battle for possession during Saturday’s drawn game at Mourneview Park. Carson was Coleraine’s best player on a day when tiredness appeared to affect the visitors.

COLERAINE manager Oran Kearney has welcomed this weekend's enforced break as he attempts to freshen up his squad. The Bannsiders' Danske Bank Premiership game against Ards has been postponed because of international call-ups, meaning their next game is a trip to Linfield on Saturday November 18.
The rest couldn't come at a better time as several of the players looked jaded during Saturday's 2-2 draw with second-placed Glenavon.
“We will have two weeks off which will be nice to freshen up a bit," admitted Oran.
“We have a few aches and pains which we will try and make better.
“There are no players set to return on the horizon from injury so the squad will be exactly the same for November."
