GAVIN CULLEN SAYS that Cockhill Celtic are in the groove again after an eye-catching 5-1 win over Derry City Reserves on Sunday.
The four-in-a-row Ulster Senior League champions are showing no signs of loosening a grip on their title and Sunday’s hammering of a youthful Candystripes side was a fine statement.
“It was a massive result,” Cullen told Donegal Sport Hub after his side went joint top of the table.
“We were excellent in possession and out of possession – it was the best we’ve been all season.[adrotate group=”80″]
“We knew that Derry would be good on the ball so we tried to press them and the players, to a man, did what we asked of them. We could have probably scored four or five more.”
Cullen himself is out with a hamstring injury at the minute with Harry Doherty deputising while Derek Doherty, Jonny Havlin and Garbhan Friel are others who have yet to return to the starting line-up.[adrotate group=”81″]
Cullen said: “Sometimes the boys are sore on themselves, but we’ve scored a lot of goals recently and that has to give us a shot in the arm.
“We kept going and that shows the hunger they have. That’s because of the bench we have and they see men coming back from injury.”
