TOMORROW afternoon sees top versus bottom as Coleraine make the trip to Milltown to face Warrenpoint Town (KO 3pm)…
Danske Bank Premiership
The Bannsiders come into the fixture in buoyant mood after securing their eighth successive win in all competitions against Glenavon last weekend. A brace from James McLaughlin had the Stripes in control at the break, before the striker would go on to net his hat-trick, with Ben Doherty adding further gloss to the scoreline from the spot. There has been recent change at Warrenpoint as former boss Barry Gray has returned to the dugout at Milltown and they will look to bounce back from last Saturday’s 4-0 defeat to Cliftonville.
The two sides clashed last month at The Showgrounds and it would be the home side who would run out 3-0 victors. A penalty from Ben Doherty had the Bannsiders well on their way, before Eoin Bradley netted a sublime free-kick before the break. There would be a late third from Doherty as he was on hand to pounce from close range after his penalty was saved by Berat Turker.
“They have had a change of manager and he will be wanting a reaction and he will be working week by week to get it,” Kearney said.
“It was a tough game the day we beat them up at The Showgrounds and it will be no different on Saturday.
“Ideally we hope the performance is better with hopefully the same outcome.
“The toughest games in this league can come from any angle.
“People when they hear the result against Glenavon will probably think that is what should happen anyway.
“But if you watched the game it was anything but that.
“Warrenpoint will be no different. I always say to the lads it’s a clean script and a new day.
“The Glenavon game is history now but anything can happen in the next game.
“It’s up to us to bring the same to the table so we can go and get the same outcome.”
Admission has been set at £12 adults, £8 concessions.
