Was at Windsor Park yesterday for the penultimate time this year, as Linfield took on Dungannon Swifts.
The whole season has been a case of one step forward, one step (in some cases, two or three steps) back, and this week was no different, as Linfield were coming off the back of a League Cup Semi-Final defeat.
With Linfield deciding to attack the Railway End in the first-half (which was a change from recent games), I managed to get to the South Stand to be in position to see Peter Thompson score, just in time.
For the rest of the first-half, the game was similar to the meeting in October. I was already imagining David Jeffrey’s “Disappointed to concede a late equaliser, after having most of the possession” interview at full-time.
The second goal Linfield needed came early in the second-half from a Brian McCaul penalty, but seeing out a routine 2-0 win was too much to ask, as Dungannon pulled one back, and almost equalised from a Jim Ervin own goal.
Linfield’s 3rd win in 4, and a run of 1 league defeat in 8 games. But statistics can be so misleading. The truth is, a welcome three points, but massive improvements needed over coming weeks.
Usual phototaking arrangements at Windsor Park. Got some ok shots. Enjoy
