The silky wide man tortured the Glens rearguard all night.

Oran Kearney labelled the former Institute man as ‘unplayable’ after the game.

The unassuming McCauley was pleased with his own performance but he wants to get on the score sheet more often.

“I’m very happy with my own performance, and obviously I’m delighted to get a goal,” he said.

“I know that is something I need to improve on, I know I should be scoring more goals.

“Overall though I’m very happy with my performance and the team’s. I think that performance has been coming for a while now. That’s the best we have played in a while to be honest. We started the game very well and we continued that on into the second half and got the goals.

“Once we went 4-0 up it was only a matter of seeing the game out. We have set the bar now and we have to keep aiming for that. We’ve put the Dungannon game behind us. We played really well against Crusaders last week so we wanted to build on that and get a bit of momentum.”
