Both players should join the Villagers’ NIFL Championship One panel and first-team coach Wesley Boyle is calling for a positive approach to the away test.

“We have made a reasonable start but know it is going to take time for players to settle,” said Boyle. “We can expect a tough test but everyone is looking forward to the Bangor match and we go into it with confidence.

“Bangor had a League Cup tie during the week but we will be fresh and need to earn the right to play then look to make the most of any chances.

“Our defensive record is decent so far but we know we need to start creating more chances in games and putting them away.

“That is why Daniel Ryan and Aaron Walsh have come into the club to strengthen our options across midfield and attack.

“I played for the Junior International squad with Aaron and he is good in possession plus has top-flight experience with Institute.

“Daniel has been at Loughgall twice in the past so will settle in quickly and gives us options out wide or up top.

“We can approach games now with a few different formations or gameplans but this league is all about winning the battle first and foremost.

“We should have a full panel of players following last weekend’s blank schedule.

“It is important to go into every game with a positive approach but know the starting point is to earn that right to play.”

Kick-off tomorrow (Saturday) will be 3 o’clock.
