Irish Premiership: Back-to-back titles super achievement – Lynch

Must read

They have conceded just 21 goals and lost just two games, having already bettered their points tally for the whole of last season with one league game still remaining.

Yes, they were second best against a Linfield side desperate for a victory to keep their faint title hopes alive, but the Larne rearguard, as they have done throughout the season, repelled the various attacks from the Blues as they ground out a point.

Lynch was keen to pay tribute to the defensive effort, which made up for the absence of their usual fluency in attack.

“The positive we will take out of this is we got what we needed,” he admitted.

“We just never got going from the first whistle to the last, but we showed great character and great resilience.

“I think Linfield have to take great credit, they came out of the traps and never gave us a minute, they were outstanding. They put ball after ball into our box and had lots of set pieces, but I think we should take great credit for how we defended them.”
