Glebe aim to hit ground running

GLEBE North will be aiming to shake off the cobwebs quickly when they return to action on Friday night - after more than four weeks kicking their heels.
The Balbriggan outfit have now played fewer games than anyone else in the Senior Division and manager Liam Kelly wants to hit the ground running when his team travel to second-bottom Edenderry Town. Glebe currently lie 10th out of the 14 teams and a defeat in Offaly would haul their opponents level, albeit with three more matches played.
Kelly insisted yesterday that he's not concerned about the current league table, but acknowledged that it's vital for his team to bring home at least a point. 'We're three or four games behind other teams and have been playing well, and there's good teams below us who were always going to start picking up points, so it's a matter of getting the players going again and getting our own results sorted. 'It's a big game on Friday, there's no doubt about it, especially with them getting beaten again on Sunday.
They'll be desperate to get a win, but it we can get three points it creates a big gap between us. 'It's our biggest game of the season so far, and it's important to get some points on the board quickly.' Pat Campbell is a slight injury doubt for Glebe, but otherwise Kelly has a full squad available. -Glebe's neighbours Malahide United crashed out of the Leinster Senior Cup in the first round when going down 3-1 at home to AUL club St Kevin's Boys last Thursday night.
