Cliftonville boss Breslin says Solitude result will not define season

Cliftonville manager Tommy Breslin says his side's Premiership campaign will not hinge on the result of Saturday's game against Linfield.

The defending champions lie seven shots behind the Blues in the league table ahead of the Solitude encounter.

"We have been playing well in recent weeks - results have been reasonably good and there is plenty of time to make up for lost ground," insisted Breslin.
